Static Systems has provided Pok Oi Hospital in Hong Kong with a nurse call system that uses voice-over-internet protocol and wireless technology to enable calls to be routed to wireless handsets.
More than 40 networked Codemlon nurse call systems serving more than 600 beds in medical and surgery wards have been installed, which allow nurses to respond immediately to calls from patients via their personal handsets, and either deal with them straight away or grade the call’s importance to assess whether the need was less urgent. The company says the system does not replace established “follow the lights” and audible systems principles, but it allows staff to deal with situations more efficiently.
