Altra Care, smart nurse call by Courtney Thorne unveiled by The Lord Mayor of Sheffield

Resident care has undergone a hi-tech revolution at a leading Sheffield care home as it becomes the first in Yorkshire to install a pioneering new generation of nurse call system designed to prioritise care for the most vulnerable.

The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Anne Murphy officially unveiled Courtney Thorne’s Altra Care system at the city’s Broomgrove Nursing Home.

Donna Pierpoint, the manager at Broomgrove said: “We’re constantly on the lookout for ways we can improve resident care and provide them with an extra level of safety and reassurance. This new nurse call system is absolutely fantastic.”

The legacies of two former residents funded the wireless Altra Care system by Courtney Thorne that automatically monitors response times and ranks their priority.

The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Anne Murphy said: “Very impressive and great to meet Betty 101 years of age and Rod with Muscular Sclerosis who explained how comforting the new call system is and how much more confident they felt wearing the wrist band and the specially adapted button for Rod.”

Nick Kennedy, sales consultant at Courtney Thorne commented: “We are proud to be the leading innovator in the UK’s nurse call industry for nearly 50 years. We are very happy and proud to see our technology helping to protect and improve the lives of residents like Betty and Rod.”

Care home managers like Donna Pierpoint look for a company with a long experience in nurse call solutions, no disruption during installation, simple operation, as well as adaptable and easy to move devices in the future.

Donna thanked everyone at Courtney Thorne and said: “As a manager I can now rest easy knowing I have a future proof and reliable system that both my residents and staff have trust in.”
