No wiring is needed to deploy either call points and pendants to patient rooms as the whole system operates on a version of the LoRa protocol used widely for IoT applications.
Doctors, nurses and care staff are provided with pagers or can use their mobile phones to be alerted of nurse call activations to improve response times. Staff can be provided pendants to support staff safety. LED signs can also be provided.
The system has an unlimited capacity of call points and pendants and can cover an extensive physical area — such as a whole resort, or multiple level hotels. It can also be extended with battery or solar-powered repeaters, or via the internet, to connect multiple sites together.
Installation is simple. Wireless call points powered by internal batteries are fixed to walls or bed heads with double-sided tape. Alternatively, neck pendants and wrist alarms are simply worn by the patient.
Not only can a fully functional nurse call system be deployed within a matter of minutes, once the crisis is over, it can also be removed with virtually no physical impact to the facility.
The technology offers an enterprise solution including pagers and professional messaging, personal alarms, and positioning over a secure, dedicated wireless network. Customisable architecture can be easily deployed and transported anywhere in Australia and New Zealand.

Patient and staff safety
Facility A was struck by lightning in a severe storm. The strike destroyed the electrical system, televisions, phones and the nurse call system. Vitalcare engineers attended the site and concluded it would take some days to make repairs during which time there would be no nurse call functionality. As a temporary measure, engineers supplied the Vitalcare Temporary Nurse Call System, including over 100 pendants to residents. The system was live within 15 minutes and all residents had replacement nurse call functionality within the hour.
Facility B had a complete system failure at 6pm on New Years eve. The system was old and end of life, and no longer supported by the supplier. Vitalcare supplied a Temporary Nurse Call System including over 50 calls points installed by beds and in bathrooms. Nurse call functionality was restored within 2 hours of the original failure.
During COVID-19 crisis, a holiday resort required immediate nurse call function and critical messaging across multiple resort rooms in a facility spread across several acres. The Vitalcare Temporary Nurse Call System was able to provide comprehensive nurse call functionality, including notification to pagers to doctors, nurses and facility staff.
