The Benefits of Nurse Call Systems in Senior Living Communities

What is a Nurse Call System?

A nurse call system refers to a system designed to facilitate communication between residents in senior living settings and their caregivers or nursing staff. It typically involves a centralized console or station that receives alerts or requests for assistance from residents through various means, such as wall-mounted buttons, pull cords or pendants. When activated, the nurse call system notifies the appropriate caregiver or nurse, allowing them to respond promptly to the resident’s needs or emergencies. Nurse call systems play a crucial role in ensuring timely and efficient care delivery, enhancing resident safety, and promoting effective communication within senior living communities.
