Nurse Call System Testing & Reporting
Aged Care and Health Care facilities should regularly and routinely test their entire Nurse Call System. This is to ensure that their liability is minimised should a problem occur on the system and a call go unanswered. Comtel Technologies can take this problem out of the hands of management and staff by undertaking periodical system testing and provide written reports showing exactly which components of the system may have failed. Our reports provide details of –
- How many system call points were tested and which type they are – e.g. number of bedside points, number of ensuite points, number of pendant handsets tested, etc.
- What level of functionality, if any, faulty points are retaining – e.g. Call / Cancel station can activate a Nurse Call but call cannot be cancelled by point.
- Over door Indicator function – e.g. working but wrong colour
- Annunciator or Display functionality – e.g. All calls from one wing are displaying on correct Nurses Display, but one room show up on a display in another wing.
System tests can be arranged ad-hoc based on audits or accreditation reviews and needs, or be conducted on a regular basis at agreed time periods – e.g. quarterly, six monthly, yearly or biennially.
