Nurse Call Solutions

Stay connected to your residents and patients for a higher standard of care

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. 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.

Wireless

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

Do you need to improve your facility’s ability to communicate between multiple systems?  

Local Alarm Solutions (LAS) is a middleware integration software that connects to almost any system, creating smooth, effective communication and reporting throughout your facility – between multiple different systems.

Regardless of your current systems, as an open-source system, LAS will integrate easily, resulting in a single, centralised reporting platform for your systems. From Nurse Call systems to phones, fire alarms or paging systems, you can use a single Dashboard to see the overview and status of every system, at any time.

Importantly, for any healthcare facility, you can also generate a full suite of reports at the touch of a button. Email them to management or staff when required, set up automatic notifications and see the history of all calls for tracking and reporting.

How It Works
  • When a certain event is triggered, LAS uses its customer-programmed rules to activate an alert via emails and text messages, ensuring the responsible staff or teams are notified immediately.
  • If alarms have gone unnoticed for some reason, our 24/7 monitoring service allows us to alert facilities if they need to take action.
  • In the event a critical device on the Nurse Call goes offline, automated reporting will be sent to your staff so any error or emergency can be attended to swiftly.

If the communication between the different systems at your facility needs streamlining or improvement, talk to us about a LAS system today.

Reporting

Our LAS solution enables healthcare providers to quickly access the data they need to understand the health of their facilities.

Resident Wandering Systems

Remove the stress of monitoring at-risk patients with an integrated Wandering System

Integrating into your Nurse Call system, this solution gives your staff the ability to focus on their immediate tasks by immediately alerting them if wandering residents or patients are near a door or exit point, or at risk of absconding from the facility. 

Acting as the eyes and ears of your staff, this system keeps a 24/7 watch on the safety of your residents – without adding to your workload. During the day, your Nurse Call system will be instantly alerted to notify the staff of any issues, and, in night mode, it will set off alarms if anyone uses an exit without the required code/permission. 

HTG offers a stand-alone or site-wide patient wandering system, and can source and integrate the most suitable Wandering System to your existing Nurse Call system. 

Wandering and disoriented patients can come to harm if they go astray, so a Wandering Security System is vital to providing increased care and security to those within your facility.

The benefits of a Medical Dialler system include:

  • no cabling required for install
  • uses existing telephony infrastructure
  • automatic self-testing
  • battery backup in event of power failure
  • hands-free talk back
  • programmable to many devices such as smoke detectors, wireless pendants or call points.

Wi-Fi

Support and connect your staff and patients with fast, reliable Wi-Fi

From connecting the multitude of medical equipment networks to supporting the fast, efficient communication between your staff, along with providing access to patients and visitors for improved lifestyle and experience, Wi-Fi is no longer a luxury, but a necessity for daily operations.

Wi-Fi technology has revolutionised the way we network computers and electronic devices in the healthcare industry, reducing the necessity for wired connections and improving the efficiency of our care.

The unique needs of healthcare facilities make it crucial to work with the right system and provider to ensure full coverage – despite the large number of mobile and network users, thick walls and multiple building levels along with large numbers of electrical appliances/devices within a typical facility.

Carecom understands the vital importance of a robust, reliable Wi-Fi system, and can ensure you have the right system to keep your facilities running smoothly.
