Jeron Pro-Alert 480 System Undergoing Compliance Testing for new Underwriters Laboratories UL2525

While at the upcoming California Automatic Fire Alarm Association (CAFAA) Tradeshow (Palm Springs, February 2-4), attendees can see the Pro-Alert Area of Rescue Assistance system manufactured by Jeron Electronic Systems, Inc.  CAFAA actively participates in technical committees for NFPA72 and is driving adoption of the UL2525 standard. This tradeshow is a unique opportunity for Jeron to reach industry experts and announce their upcoming compliance with UL2525.

UL2525 is the new standard for Two-Way Communications Systems for Area of Rescue Assistance. Through the UL2525 standard, Authority Having Jurisdiction can require, by the building code in force, that systems meet this new UL Standard. The Jeron Pro-Alert 480 System is currently undergoing compliance testing for UL2525 and is already compliant with NFPA 72, ADA, and IBC standards.  According to Ericka Baran, VP Sales and Marketing for Jeron Electronic Systems, “Jeron believes in Underwriters Laboratories standards for all the markets we serve and for our systems to be listed for appropriate UL standards.  We fully expect our Pro-Alert 480 system to be listed in the near term for the UL2525 standard.”

At the CAFAA and the NFPA conferences (June 2022), Jeron will highlight the Pro-Alert 480 Area of Rescue System used for emergency alerting and communications.  Pro-Alert 480 is a life-safety emergency intercom solution typically used in an area of refuge during a fire or other emergency, when an evacuation may not be safe or possible.  Occupants can communicate with an on-site or off-site call center until help arrives.  This ‘area of rescue’ is typically located in elevator lobbies/stairwells in high-rise buildings, mixed use, commercial and hospitality.

Isolation Doorway Station Provides One-Touch Communications for Patients in Quarantine

The Provider® 790 Nurse Call System continues to evolve to address communication issues that impact patient and staff safety. Wireless alerting and communications, real-time staff locating, intercom staff stations, smart bed integration, real-time dashboards, activity logging and reporting, and streamlined workflow processes are just a few of the advanced Provider 790 features.

The COVID-19 pandemic introduced many new, costly, and time consuming safety challenges. In response, Jeron created the new Isolation Doorway Communication Station to address these challenges.

This new station for the Provider 790 System is a one-touch communications solution for direct caregiver to patient communication without needing to enter the patient room. This easy-to-use solution utilizes an intercom station located outside of each isolation room allowing caregivers audio communications with their patient within the room. With this new communication station, staff do not need to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or to write in reverse on the window of the room to communicate to their patients.

Quick Turn Availability of Jeron Nurse Call Systems

Jeron has had no delays in supporting their existing and new nurse call customers throughout 2020 and 2021. While following all safety protocols, Jeron continued manufacturing throughout the pandemic and even increased production. This continued availability of Jeron systems and parts has allowed healthcare facilities to keep their existing systems running and enabled Jeron to replace aging and obsolete systems in a timely manner.

As a family run business, Jeron forecasted potential supply issues and stockpiled the components needed to manufacture Provider® Nurse Call Systems. Jeron’s forward-planning perspective also included adding increased production capacity within the last year to meet growing demand.

Provider Nurse Calls’ One-Touch Workflow Terminal for Staff & Family

Jeron is proud to offer their healthcare customers a full spectrum of nurse call alerting and communications systems that work across platforms to provide a cohesive alerting, communications and workflow solution. The Provider® 790 Touchscreen Workflow Terminal is an integral part of this total solution by serving as the staff workflow and communications hub within each patient room.

Meeting ever expanding applications for the Workflow Terminal, Jeron has recently expanded the capability to over 30 customizable pages supporting 150 buttons.  This increased programmability is now customized for different users, such as the patient’s family and caregivers.

The Workflow Terminal ‘Family’ and ‘Clinical’ screens are able to relay information to specific caregivers and support staff with a single button press. Family can ask for water, a blanket, or general assistance with the terminal.  When caregivers cross the threshold of the room when wearing real-time locating tags, clinical staff will automatically have access to their specific workflow buttons to relay information to other staff all from the patient’s room.

The Workflow Terminal provides one-touch coordination of hundreds of workflow processes with:

  • Direct and immediate communication
  • Hands-free communication between many departments
  • Simple to use and easy to learn
  • Time stamps integrate with data network for detailed event reporting
  • Fully customizable button for facility procedures

With 150 customizable buttons for rounding reminders, calls, workflows, and one-touch intercom, it will meet the alerting and communication needs of many different areas within your facility.

Mobeen Chaudhry, Senior Technical Consultant for Jeron, commented, “Making improvements on legacy versions of communications equipment is necessary as healthcare evolves. Adapting and customizing is Jeron’s specialty.”
