ANSI/UL 1069 Nurse Call System Requirements
The ANSI/UL 1069 details construction, performance, reliability and safety of nurse call system components. NFPA 99 guidelines define four different building categories:
- Category 1: facilities, where failure of a nurse call system is likely to result in major injury or death of patients or caregivers, require an ANSI/UL 1069 approved call system
- Category 2: facilities where failure of a nurse call system is likely to cause minor injury to patients or caregivers to require an ANSI/UL 1069 approved call system
- Category 3: facilities where failure of a nurse call system is unlikely to cause injury but could cause patient discomfort do not require an ANSI/UL 1069 approved call system
- Category 4: facilities, where failure of a nurse call system would have no impact on patient care, do not require an ANSI/UL 1069 approved call system
All hard-wired nurse call system parts from Cornell Communications meet ANSI/UL 1069 requirements.
ADA Compliant Nurse Call Systems for Skilled Nursing Facilities
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) dictates what senior and skilled care, assisted living centers, and retirement communities must do for residents with varying levels of disabilities. In particular, Title III of the ADA applies to any facility of “public accommodation”.
Comprehensive nurse call systems are one way to meet ADA requirements. Depending on your residents and staff, you may need a mixture of audible and visual systems. Cornell can provide a free quote for a custom ADA-compliant nurse call system based on your facility needs.
