Being able to respond promptly and effectively to patient requests is an important criterion in the healthcare profession. Indeed, in most hospitals, retirement homes and elder care facilities, being able to effectively handle an emergency call from a patient could be the difference between life and death.
At Aatel, we work closely with professionals in the healthcare industry to design, install and service nurse call systems that enable nurses and other healthcare practitioners to communicate more effectively and efficiently while providing the highest possible level of care to their patients.
Our preferred vendor for nurse call systems is Rauland-Borg Corp., the leader in nurse call systems. They offer highly advanced options for our clients, including the Responder 5 and Responder 4000 Nurse Call Systems.
Responder 5 Nurse Call System
Rauland Responder 5 delivers speed and simplicity to users in a complete nurse call system. Patient calls can be sent directly to the nurse or caregiver, enabling prompt and efficient patient care. Responder 5 also has internal communications functionality, enabling staff to notify other hospital personnel when assistance and support is required.
5 Reasons why Responder 5 makes a caregiver’s life easier
1) Fast, direct communication
With the Responder 5 Nurse Call System, the right person gets the right call at the right time. Calls coming from a patient are relayed directly to the nurse’s wireless phone or pager – in real-time. Nurses can consult with other staff members or physicians directly. Best of all, this nurse call system is quiet and non-invasive, which promotes a healing and stress-free environment for patients.
2) Simple to use, easy to learn
Responder 5 is simplicity in action. Unlike more complicated technology that can burden staff, in one touch a nurse can be reached, a call can be forwarded or canceled or nurses can contact other hospital staff for assistance. Signing “on” and “off” duty takes only seconds, so no more long lines at shift changes or waiting for patient assignments. Because the system can be customized to support the way your nurses run their floors, staff acceptance is immediate. Everything about Responder 5 relieves nurses from wasted effort, so they can spend more time on what matters most – quality patient care.
3) Streamlined workflow
With the push of a button, Responder 5 streamlines workflow and speeds up response time to patients’ needs by improving staff communication and giving them the support they may require. This system integrates with other areas of the hospital as well as with its other technologies (such as wireless phones and pagers) to create an up-to-date, real-time electronic overview that outlines patient information, room status, and services needed in a quick, easy layout.
4) A complete and customized solution
Responder 5 connects patients to staff by linking the capabilities of the latest wireless technology (phones, pagers, real-time locating systems, etc.) with traditional “nurse call” equipment. The system is scalable up to 1500 beds and 100 hospital units, so it can be designed to fit any environment. Our certified distributors are experts in systems integration. They understand nurse call systems and hospitals and will ensure the system is set up in an optimal way that’s customized for your call process.
