Area of Rescue Emergency Communication
Those unable to help themselves can get evacuation assistance when needed.
Systems and products from Cornell Communications include:
Areas of refuge or rescue assistance emergency communication systems provide a method for elderly residents, 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 the elevators for two-way communication to local or offsite security personnel.
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.
Mandatory ADA approved signs are provided for three purposes:
DIRECTION — signs to the call for help stations and Refuge area;
LOCATING — signs in “Exit” style are lighted, above door signs identifying the refuge area;
INSTRUCTION — signs providing the instructions to call for 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.
A complete product line of wired and wireless nurse call and emergency call systems are available to meet those requirements where two way voice communication and/or the mobility of wireless pendants is preferred. This includes nurse call buttons, transmitters, receivers, sensors, bed stations and pull cord stations, smoke detector transmitters, and other components.
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.
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.
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.
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.
