Systems and products from Cornell Communications include:

Area of Rescue Emergency Communication Systems

Areas of refuge or rescue assistance emergency communication systems provide a method for disabled individuals or persons with limited mobility to call for help in an emergency, such as a fire when elevator egress is not available.

The system includes control panels typically located in the lobby area communicating with call stations located generally in the stairwells or adjacent to elevators for two-way voice communication to local or offsite security personnel.

Area of Rescue Signage

Mandatory ADA approved signs are provided for three purposes:

  1. DIRECTION signs to the call for help stations and Refuge area
  2. LOCATING signs in “Exit” style are lighted, above door signs identifying the refuge area
  3. INSTRUCTION signs providing the instructions to call for assistance.

Emergency Area of Refuge lighted signs (LED or photoluminescent/glow-in-the-dark) and signage with directional arrows and clear lettering help residents and patients find the area of rescue assistance.

The single- and double-sided signs can be wall or ceiling mounted. Our illuminated electric and luminescent signs meet ADA, NFPA Life Safety Code 101, and all building code requirements.

Visual Nurse Call Systems

The basic call system is the Visual Call system notifying staff of a call for assistance via a light and tone only when no voice communication is required. Typically used in Skilled Care residences, public restrooms or the treatment areas within outpatient medical clinics. Typically calls are placed by pushing a call cord button or pulling a string on a call station. The care staff is notified via a light and a tone either at the central staff station or by observing the corridor light over the doorway or near the care area.

Light Status Call and Patient Scheduling Systems

Nurse Call Systems

The Clinic Status system is a combination outpatient scheduling and care staff monitoring system along with an emergency call system. Utilizing a three-colored button switch in each patient care room the staff can track and communicate the status of each person scheduled for care. By using steady or flashing lights the staff can monitor a central panel to determine and schedule up to six activities such as: if the patient is in the room, when the care staff is with the patient, what activity is needed next and if the person requires assistance. Individual status lights are shown on a corridor light above the door outside each patient treatment room providing for easy visual assessment of that patient and room.

Remote Call Notification via Pocket Paging or Email

The VersaPage system notifies the care staff remotely of a call for assistance via pocket pagers, a text to their smart phone, or an individual or group email.

Incident Tracking and Management Reporting

Software is available to both monitor and evaluate staff efficiency and response times while also tabulating the time required and reasons for the assistance needed by each resident.

Wireless Paging Systems

Other wireless systems and products include VersaPage, Aura nurse call pendants, and reporting and incident logging software to monitor and evaluate staff efficiency and response times.

Wireless Emergency Response Network

Wireless emergency response system includes portable nurse call buttons, transmitters, receivers, sensors, wireless bed stations and pull cord stations, wireless smoke detector transmitters, and other components.

Door Monitoring System

Improve your perimeter security and wander management for senior residents with controlled access and egress of the building and specific areas with mobile resident pendants or wristbands and keypad stations.
