How to Get More Out of Your Nurse Call System

Do you need more from your nurse call system?

More often than not, nurse call systems are outdated, featureless, and hinder operations rather than helping staff with their daily tasks. Luckily, there are a number of ways to improve upon your current nurse call systems without eating too deeply into your budget!

Here are a few of the most common issues our team hears about regarding nurse call systems:

  1. Systems are outdated and lacking in features: Many relatively “new” systems still rely on pagers and basic call lights, are lacking in peer-to-peer communication capabilities, and cause staff to be bogged down by multiple devices.
  2. Reporting and charting: Older systems often lack reporting capability and charting on the go is nearly impossible so your staff can’t keep up. 
  3. Resident experience: Traditional printed flyers on bulletin boards might not be seen by all residents. 
  4. Temperature monitoring: Tying up staff with having to log hot and cold water temperatures takes time away from caring for residents.
  5. Budgets: Overhauling an entire system can be costly.

How can you improve your nurse call system?

  1. Renew your current nurse call system with new, integrable technology that works with key systems you already have in place.
  2. Make real-time reporting and charting easier with the help of ONE™ Mobile. The ONE Mobile app powered by The ONE Platform™ can eliminate the need for pagers and enable on the go charting. 
  3. Utilize digital information boards with the help of ONE™ Content to make announcements in real-time to staff and residents. Whether it’s the dinner menu or the bingo schedule, ONE Content keeps everyone in the know.
  4. Automate your temperature monitoring to free up your staff so they can focus on resident care with ONE™ Temperature.
