Four Reasons for Having Effective Nurse Call Systems
- 1: PATIENTS CAN CALL FOR ASSISTANCE:
as the call buttons are placed in the patients’ rooms at their bedside, bathrooms and any common area, they can call anytime they need a nurse by a push of a button
- 2: INSTANT NOTIFICATION:
As soon as a button is pushed notification is displayed at the nurses’ station with all the patients’ details with a reminder as well for timely addressing of the situation.
- 3: ALL STAFF ALERTS:
Each staff member can be given a wireless device and no matter where in the facility that staff member is they can receive the notification which will also include to which nurse the patient is assigned to.
- 4: KNOW HOW YOUR PERFORMANCE:
As all calls are logged at the nursing station, the system also provides a printout or performance report on each nurse which is great for evaluating performance per nurse.
