Nurse Call and Communication Systems for Senior Living

Selecting the right nurse call system for your senior living community can help streamline communication, increase resident safety, improve staff response time, and optimize operational efficiency. Call systems in senior care facilities have evolved from single point hard-wired hospital pull strings to wireless integrated two-way communication systems that transmit resident and staff communications campus-wide, allowing staff to respond in a timely and organized manner. 

Also known as emergency call systems or wireless emergency response systems, the components of call systems vary by the needs and specifications of senior living communities. Advances in technology allow modern nurse call systems to coordinate emergency notifications and resident requests from bedside buttons, in-room monitors, health monitoring devices and wearable accessories. These devices communicate alerts to nurse stations and across staff paging systems, and may also have the ability to integrate with access control systems as part of a comprehensive plan to protect the life-safety of residents. Whether your organization is in need of a comprehensive communication solution or is looking to introduce a resident monitoring device, it’s important to understand how each component integrates with existing IT infrastructure.

Compare functionality and features of each nurse call system against the requirements of your stakeholders and the needs of your community to ensure your selection optimizes communication between your residents and staff. Finding the right nurse call system can help coordinate and track staff response and allow your organization to measurably improve the delivery of care.
