Nurse Call Solutions
An effective and convenient way to stay in close contact with your residents and patients.
At Carecom, we design advanced Nurse Call solutions, using industry-leading Nurse Call Systems, to help healthcare facilities improve their processes, safety and the quality of resident care. As a CareTech Systems partner, we are able to offer specially-designed systems that meet the specific and diverse needs of the Australian market.
IP Nurse Call
Our IP Nurse Call Systems allow for real-time, 24/7 monitoring, sending messages and alerts back to both the facility’s IT staff and our team at Carecom when any issues arise.
Each Nurse Call point on the IP system is fitted with Real-Time Location System (RTLS) hardware, allowing nurses to check-in to the room automatically upon entering, which will advise other staff the someone is attending the the needs on the resident/patient and also tracking the exact time the staff member is spending with in the room.
Carecom can provide both full IP and serial Nurse Call Systems for your facility. Both are designed for future system scaling and expansion and offer integration with RTLS along with the capability to have wireless integration.
Carecom offers reliable and robust Wireless Nurse Call solutions for healthcare facilities where the existing cabling is not up to standard or new cabling is not permitted.
The Wireless Nurse Call System is compatible with Carecom accessories and has the following features:
- Compatibility with CareTech IP and serial systems
- 24Vdc hard-powered
- Used with a double button, pear push pendant
- 3 x inputs with contact to ground
- 1 x output with the ability to switch electronic relay and turn on/off overbed light
- Call points available in a range of configurations
- 9V lithium battery with a 12-month battery life
- Battery cable hook
Real Time Location System
Keep track of staff or residents in your facility.
Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) allow your staff and residents to move freely while collecting their location as they move through a tag with built-in RFID technology – so you always know where they are.
RTLS is built into the hardware of all hardwired CareTech Nurse Call points, and can also be overlaid on a wireless system or provided as a stand-alone system, specifically designed for healthcare environments. Ideal for asset tracking and management, the RTLS allows for automatic ‘staff presence’ events, recording the amount of time your staff are spending with residents for your reference.
Designed for flexibility, the RTLS features can be activated or deactivated by the Nurse Call software as needed. Increase the safety of your residents and improve staff response times by always knowing the location of everyone in your facility.
Middleware Integration Solutions
Local Alarm Solutions (LAS) is a middleware integration software that connects to almost any system, enabling you to improve the communication and reporting between multiple different systems at your facility.
An open-source system, LAS integrates easily, becoming the centralised reporting platform for all your important systems, including; Nurse Call systems, fire alarm systems, android phones, DECT paging systems, email and more.
Simply use the Dashboard to see an overview and status of all systems, set up automatic reporting, or generate a full suite of expansive reports to see the history of all calls. These reports can be automatically emailed to management staff as required. Carecom also monitors all sites in real-time, enabling us to detect issues and notify your facility management if required for a swift resolution.
How It Works
When a certain event is triggered, LAS uses its customer-programmed rules to activate an alert. LAS can send emails and text messages on local DECT or GSM phones, or send a message to a large display board, ensuring the responsible staff or teams are notified immediately.
We understand the importance of immediate response times and offer a 24/7 monitoring service, allowing us to alert facilities if any alarms have gone unnoticed.
If a critical device on the Nurse Call goes offline, automated reporting will be sent to site maintenance staff along with Carecom Solutions to notify of system errors.
If you are having trouble communicating between different systems at your facility, talk to us about a LAS system today.
