All About Nurse Call Systems During the Ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic

nurse call systems

A nurse call system provides patients in healthcare settings with the ability to alert nurses and surrounding staff of their needs.

The installation of a practical nurse call system provides patients in healthcare settings with the ability to alert nurses and surrounding staff of their needs. Nursing call systems are critical in hospital environments and provide an effective means of two-way communication between patients and their caretakers. As a safety measure, this provides patients with the ability to contact a nurse or staff member without ever having to leave their room. This can also help increase safety measures during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic through socially distanced communication. 

Different Types of Nurse Call Systems: Button Systems

There are two types of nursing call systems available. One of the first types of nursing call systems is a “button” system, which is often the most standard and basic installation. Button systems are used by pressing a button located near the patient’s bed, which provides the patient with the ability to communicate with support staff and their nurse. This can also increase the patients sense of security through the reassurance that support is available at the push of a button. 

Intercom Systems

Intercom systems are an advanced nursing call system that is frequently implemented within a hospital setting. As an advanced system, it provides the monitoring nurse with the ability to communicate with a patient without stepping foot into the room itself. An intercom system provides a dual means of communication between the patient, nurse, and vice versa. This can increase the patient’s safety level and alert nurses of any patient needs while adhering to social distancing measures.
