Technology is increasingly playing a more significant role in the world of healthcare. The various technological tools available to patients in hospitals have greatly improved the level of care that is available to them. The nurse call system installed hospital rooms has especially benefited from the technological improvements possible with fiber optic technology. Nurse call systems, which enable patients to call for assistance, is a crucial part of hospital healthcare. Read on to learn precisely how a nurse call system can improve communications and why having an updated system is essential for excellent patient care.
Improved Communications & Quicker Responses
When a patient uses the nurse call system, a message is immediately sent to the doctors and nurses and can alert them to which patient in which room needs assistance. Most importantly, the call system helps to provide patients with timely care provided by the fast fiber-optic network.
More Information Available
A text message or audio sent by a nurse call system can quickly tell nurses the relevant information. They can instantly communicate a “Code Blue in Room 145,” for instance. Additionally, when a call system is connected to a heart monitor or other medical equipment, it can send real-time patient data to nurses. This data can alert them to notable changes in body temperature or heart rate.
If an intercom-based nurse call system is installed, the patient can verbally communicate with a remote nurse, which will help the hospital staff know if immediate attention is required. This can help the doctor or nurses avoid having to stop their other tasks to visit the patient.
Higher Patient Satisfaction
When patients receive adequate, attentive, and efficient care, they are more comfortable and pleased, which can, in turn, help improve their recovery rate. Nurse call systems can help decrease stress on the patient as well as the hospital staff. Additionally, the systems are easy to use for both patient and nurse, which keeps hospital tasks moving smoothly and efficiently.
