Facility-Wide Networking

A Networked Ethernet Nurse Call Infrastructure Means Flexibility and Scalability

The Provider Nurse Call System’s Ethernet backbone allows every nursing unit to work together as a facility-wide solution. This networked nurse call architecture lets calls and call coverage move between units to match staffing levels and patient census.


Centralized Operation – all patient calls can be routed to central nurse console(s) to answer calls; staff are then dispatched to the patient room if needed

Day/Night Transfer – when staffing down at night, all patient calls from one unit can be rerouted from their “day” nursing station to their “night” nursing station typically located within the same unit or a neighboring unit

Swing Rooms – depending on census between neighboring units, rooms can “swing” between adjoining units to ensure bed availability
