ScanALERT System Diagram
The ScanALERT Nurse Call System is a state-of-the-art digital system offering advanced features and system design. It is Australian designed and manufactured with readily available spare parts and on-site service support.
ScanALERT uses Digital readout displays to identify the origin of each call. When a patient presses a CALL button a programmed message is displayed on the Digital Display Panels in corridors & the nurses station, and an inbuilt buzzer sounds to alert staff that a call has been made.
The system has inbuilt call priority, each Call Point can be easily configured to be a standard Nurse call or a Nurse Assist call. Nurse Assist calls have priority on the system and when activated sound an urgent call tone on the Display Panels to alert staff. If more than one call is active at the same time the programmed messages are displayed in sequence on the Digital Display Panels until they are cancelled.
The system can store and display up to 20 simultaneous calls. A Nurse Assist call will take priority on the Display Panels, with non-priority calls masked until the Nurse Assist call is reset. The system then returns to normal operation.
All Call Points have a red LED reassurance indicator that glows when the CALL button has been pressed. This LED stays on until the Nurse attends to the call and resets the call by pressing the CANCEL button. Calls can only be reset at the Call Point they originated from.
Each time a CALL button is pressed the audible buzzers in the Display Panels will sound to alert staff. The system includes a self test feature whereby all Call Points on the system are continuously scanned, and any faults are immediately reported.
A large variety of Call Points, Overdoor Lights, Buzzers and Display Panels are available to customize the system to suit individual requirements.
