Helping People Through Technology
The Senior Sentry nurse call system by CISCOR is PC based and features CISCOR's revolutionary DEVI 9000 alarm processing software providing maximum power and efficiency in the management of nurse call system alarms and staff response. A nurse call system may be hardwired, wireless or a combination of the two. Record the date, time, and location of all nurse calls. Acknowledge (silence) any nurse call by individual staff ID number at the computer or by hand held two way radio. This level of staff accountability dramatically increases staff efficiency and attention. Set time windows for amount of time taken to acknowledge a nurse call and time taken to restore the nurse call switch to normal. The Senior Sentry nurse call system can sound an alert if action from staff is too slow or send an immediate email message to administrators advising them of the tardy response. Print reports any way, any time. For example, see how many times Ms. Jones activated her nurse call switch in the last month and how long it took to respond each time. Each morning administrators may print a report showing the events that exceeded the accepted acknowledge and restore time window.
Two Way intercom options allow voice to voice calls between residents and staff. Calls can be taken at the nurse call station, by radio or by telephone. This allows maximum mobility for staff. Conversations are hands free on the part of residents.
A variety of nurse call system switches is available to suite every application. Nurse call switches can be custom printed with the facility logo.
Wireless, water resistant nurse call pendants are available with belt clips, neck lanyards, or wrist bands. Nurse call system pendants are fully supervised, meaning staff are alerted if the nurse call pendants stop working or develop a low battery. This is vital when lives depend on your nurse call system. Spread spectrum technology transmits alarm signals on multiple frequencies, ensuring the greatest possible degree of reliability. Staff can pinpoint the person whose pendant has been activated, and with optional locators the Senior Sentry™ will even tell you where in your facility, inside or out, they are.
Remote Alarm Announcement
Senior Sentry™ nurse call systems completely eliminate the need to keep a staff person at the main nurse station. This means a big savings in labor costs. Nurse call system alarms can be posted to pagers, telephones or radios. All staff are simultaneously informed of alarms or events. Radios provide added benefits. Staff can then use their radios to decide amongst themselves who is going to respond to the nurse call increasing efficiency. Everyday staff to staff communications such as dispatching maintenance are easily and seamlessly woven into the tapestry of your facility. In addition, nurse call system alarms can be posted to email and fax. This is especially useful for system supervisory notifications.
How Radios Work
If a problem occurs, the voice synthesizer in the computer announces an alarm to all staff carrying radios. The message will be repeated every fifteen seconds, requiring an acknowledgement from a staff member to silence the repeating broadcasts. By entering his or her unique ID number into the keypad on the hand held two way radio, that person will be logged, by name, into the computer as the responsible party. This increased accountability is vital when the lives of your residents depend upon the response of facility caregivers, and this significantly reduces your liability. Acknowledge by ID number is also available with the Senior Sentry telephone interface.
Upgrade Existing Systems
The powerful benefits of Senior Sentry computer based nurse call systems can be added to any previously installed nurse call system.
Nurse Call Systems
A nurse call system by CISCOR revolves around CISCOR's powerful DEVI 9000 alarm processing software yielding total efficiency and power in management of nurse call system alarms and care giver response. This nurse call system may be wireless, hardwired, or any combination of the two. You may record the time, date, and location of all generated nurse calls. Staff may acknowledge (silence) any nurse call by individual staff ID number at the computer or by hand held two way radio. Having staff accountability at this level greatly enhances staff attention and efficiency. You may set time windows to watch for the amount of time taken to acknowledge a nurse call alarm and the time taken to restore the nurse call switch to its normal position. An alert will be sounded by the Senior Sentry nurse call system if action from staff is tardy or it can send an email message to facility administrators telling them of the tardy response. Print reports any fashion and at any time. For example, we can see how often Ms. Jones activated her nurse call switch in the previous month and how much time was taken to respond each alarm. Every day staff persons may print a report showing the events that were outside the accepted acknowledge and restore time window.
