Nurse call systems are buttons or cords found in hospitals and nursing homes, where patients are at their most vulnerable, such as beside their bed and in the bathroom. These systems allow patients in health care settings to alert a nurse or other healthcare staff members remotely of their need for help.

Types of systems are essential, wireless, intercoms, and cell phone alerts. Tips on selecting the best approach for you are identifying your needs and budget, setting realistic goals, taking inventory, testing compatibility, reviewing your options, meeting with the technology partner, and developing a game plan.

To conclude, talk to a call systems specialist and find out which system would best meet your needs. With so many benefits, especially safety needs, it makes sense to check them out for yourself. Look them over and choose the best for you!
