Versus Technology announced the integration of its real-time locating system to Rauland’s Responder 5 Nurse Call. The integration will assist hospitals communicate in real-time to minimize data entry, eliminate redundant activities and automate tasks such as patient call cancellation.
With call systems such as Responder 5 in place, hospitals can increase the nurse-to-patient ratio while reducing costs and maintaining quality care. The real-time locating systems from Versus adds to this by reducing the number of steps required for a nurse to cancel the patient call. Her presence alone does this via a real-time locating system badge, increasing response times, nurse mobility, communication and staff satisfaction.
Nurse Call Life Safety Systems are necessary in all situations where a nurse is not constantly present with a patient – providing a mechanism that allows the patient to call for a nurse’s assistance.
Nurse call systems are mandated by individual states and generally regulated by Underwriters Laboratories, the body that has traditionally approved nurse call systems for safety and security. To that end, Rauland-Borg and Versus share the co-UL listing for RTLS-enabled nurse call systems.
