Visual Nurse Call
Visual Nurse Call Systems from Cornell Communications
Visual Nurse Call systems are the most basic emergency call solution typically used in skilled nursing homes or healthcare clinics where a resident or patient requires a method to call for assistance.
System Design & Configuration
Call stations to request assistance: Typically a wall mounted pull cord station (string activated) is located near the toilet, bath or shower. If the person is bedridden a wall mounted bed station with a 6- or 10-foot call cord allows the request for assistance to be activated from the bed.
Calls are communicated to the staff: Typically a corridor light fixture in the hallway above the door of the room and on a central monitoring panel at the nurses’ station notify staff of a request for assistance. In many applications a pocket pager carried by the staff allows the contacting of the mobile staff members.
A 24VDC Power Supply centrally powers the system and a Control Module generates two different signals to distinguish between emergency and regular calls for assistance.
Optional Call Devices include Staff, Duty, Code Blue and Check-In stations.
Call System Technology
Visual nurse call systems typically incorporate wired technology but also can be provided with wireless stations to simplify the ease and cost of installation. Wireless pendants provide a mobile method of requesting assistance from anywhere.
Systems are available in many sizes from small to large. The emergency communication system distributors at Cornell offer standard sizes as follows:
A Single Station call cord device (KB-111 with power)
Medium Size Systems
A Ten Station Control Station Panel for up to 10 call stations (A-4010 with a separate power supply)
Standard or Large Systems
The Universal Control Panel handles 4, 6, 8, 12, 24 or 48 stations (A-4400 with a separate power supply)
