STE Advantages integrated solution regarding wireless Nurse Call is based around traditional integration and deployment and not that of network integration – network integration is used as a last place data notifier typically.
The advantage of the wireless Nurse Call is that the patient can be anywhere that has coverage. The Nurse Call is located on them – and most importantly it locates them – guiding nurses directly to the patient making the call.
This is critical for larger organisations where patients may have to leave their wards, going for smokes or visiting specialists. No matter where the patient is, when they call for as Nurse, they will be found quickly.
The separation f the RFID technology from network infrastructure is important, customers need to be 100% sure that the system is online and working. Networks are now extremely complicated and bandwidth allocation and protection requires many hours of labour to get right and then maintain.
Systems that are deemed critical – like Nurse Call – are protected in the STE Advantage integrated design model.
Wireless nurse call systems also work on the same infrastructure and the Asset tracking system systems and lone worker duress systems. This allows for multiple integrated deployments from the one infrastructure.
