Providing freedom of movement to the residents in your assisted living facility is paramount for resident safety and satisfaction. However, ensuring their protection can be difficult if your facility isn’t outfitted with the latest technology upgrades it needs.
With a wireless nurse call system, you provide residents autonomy while ensuring healthcare workers can respond to incidents promptly and effectively. Keep reading below to learn more about this wireless system that adds independence and protection for your residents in Easton, PA.
A wireless nurse call system incorporates wireless pendants, sensors, receiver networks, dome lights, messaging, and call devices into one easy-to-use system that communicates with a central nurse call station. Long-term care facilities, memory care wings, rehabilitation clinics, and other skilled nursing sites can all benefit from this comprehensive, site-wide healthcare solution.
Sensors are unobtrusive to a resident’s daily living experience and are placed next to beds and appropriate areas within shared community rooms for notification. Pull cords can be added in bathtubs, showers, and bathrooms, and dome lights are added in the hallway outside of rooms. TAP (Telelocator Alphanumeric Protocol) wireless messages are sent from these sensors to pagers, wireless phones, and two-way radios monitored by healthcare provider teams.
With multiple shifts, resident occupancy changes, and other variables that affect your assisted living facility, installing a new nurse call system may initially seem overwhelming. The Eastern Time team has extensive experience working in the healthcare field, so we understand the need to adhere to strict staff and patient safety guidelines as well as privacy regulations. Our flexible installation schedules can accommodate your facility’s unique workflow and residents’ needs without limited interference to your daily operations. The wireless deployment allows our team to get your residents the protection they need quickly and with minimal disruption.
Many managers have had poor past experiences with integrating new technologies into their facilities due to employees feeling overwhelmed with learning how to operate many devices. Instead of overwhelming your team with new devices and functionality, leaving them to fend for themselves, our Eastern Time team members will train all of your staff shifts. In addition, our call system partner, West-Com, provides free technical training courses for the life of your system.
With a robust wireless nurse call system in your assisted living facility, the residents, families, and staff members have higher satisfaction rates.
