to ensure Patient Care
Nurse Call System - Esteem
Models of Nurse Call System:
OBJECTIVE OF NCS ESTEEM:
Working of NCS-EsteemBy turning ON the switch on the calling unit an indicator gets lighted up confirming that your call is passed on ,which in turn reaches the Controller/Display unit and dynamically flashes the room number of the patient on it simultaneously, the Voice module in it announces the call which forces the nurse to give immediate attention.
After noticing the call the nurse can silence the voice module by pressing the MUTE button on Controller/Display Unit which makes the flashing window steady but it will continue glowing unless it is cleared by the nurse from the patient”s room using the calling unit. If another patient raises a call, again the same procedure takes place independent of the preceding call. NS LCD Display will show long pending call message if a call is unattended for a long time.
Usage of LCD display allows for flipping the pages to show more pending calls if any. This saves wall space and reduces the cost per bed.
Thus NCS ensures a positive and immediate response from the nurse for the patient needs.
NS-LCD DisplayThis is a Microcontroller based device placed in the nurse station with dynamic windows for different rooms which can be composed and loaded into the NS-LCD display through a LAPTOP. (generally done only once at the time of installation). and also it has a voice module to announce the call. There are three buttons on it,
Power Button: Pressing this for long time(approximately 3 sec) turns the device ON or OFF.
MUTE Button: It is for acknowledging a call from patient. It will make the flashing window steady and also silences the voice module until a call is cleared.
Test Button: On pressing the button it will flash all the windows and will announce ”Attention, Patient calling” to make sure that the device is working fine.
Patient Interface Hub (PIH)Allows for 16 calling units and 16 toilet calling units. Uses 2 pairs of wires to get interconnected with Esteem LCD. It works on 230V AC power supply. Can use PIX unit to connect more than 16 calling units. Maximum 4 PIX units can connect to PIH.
Patient Interface Xtender (PIX)
Allows for 8 calling units and 8 toilet calling units. Uses 4 pairs of wires to get interconnected with PIH unit. It draws power from the PIH itself. Hence no additional power is required.
Electronic Calling Unit
The unit is designed with soft touch key pad consisting of one key for call initiation and another for clearing call which is required to be done by the nurse attending to the patient.
Additional push button switch is integrated to this unit by means of a coil cord to enable a patient to initiate a call from the bed itself.
Toilet Calling Unit
Here call is originated by pulling the cord and can be cleared by pulling it again. The LED indicator lights up if call is active. This allows the patient to initiate a call from squatting positions itself.
Door IndicatorThese semi circular shaped indicators can be mounted on the wall near the patient's door so that , nurse walking through the corridor can see it from a distance.These are made of super bright LEDs to indicate patient's call pending which can be seen from the corridor itself.
