Skilled Nursing Facilities Face Challenges with Changing Requirements
RF Technologies answers the call for UL 1069 certified nurse call equipment with new Quick Response® Pro wireless nurse call system.
State requirements for skilled nursing facilities are changing to require nurse call systems to meet the UL 1069 Standard for Hospital Signaling and Nurse Call Equipment. Nine states currently require UL 1069 by code. Another 10 states have adopted the standard and may soon begin enforcing. This trend is an important signal to existing facilities and new construction to seriously consider future-proofing their facilities with a nurse call system that meets the UL 1069 standard.
In addition to changing state requirements, hardwired nurse call systems can be more difficult and costly to change or expand. As demand changes for skilled nursing services adaptability is essential. The drawback of hardwired systems are the fixed pull cord devices that are not often connected to a computer-based system. These fixed devices are more costly to maintain and relocate, and patients must be moved from their rooms during the construction due to dust, or worse, asbestos.
To meet the growing need for a wireless UL 1069 nurse call system, RF Technologies (RFT) is excited to release Quick Response® Pro.
After multiple months of third-party testing, Quick Response Pro achieved UL 1069 certification to ensure the safety, durability, and performance of the system. RFT’s wireless nurse call system is managed by their CODE ALERT® Enterprise software, which also acts as the central call annunciation panel. CODE ALERT Enterprise provides an intuitive user interface to receive and categorize alerts, features a facility map view to quickly see the location of alerts, and includes extensive QAPI reporting with the Quality Dashboard module.
Quick Response Pro maintains a home-like aesthetic while going beyond the traditional pull cord needs for patients to call for help. The system integrates with numerous devices to enable quick staff notification, including corridor dome lights, quick look displays, strobe light with sounder, and multi-color zone lights. Facilities interested to learn more about Quick Response Pro are invited to request a free demonstration at www.rft.com/Demo.
