Courtney Thorne – Nurse Call Article
Published in Care Management Matters – Issue: October 2009
All Courtney Thorne’s wireless nurse call systems are tailored to each individual care home’s specific needs. Courtney Thorne offers a unique touch screen display that enables the care home to personalise its nurse call system. Emergency calls are given absolute priority whilst the optional on-screen mapping system allows for an instant visual location of the caller to enable faster response times and visual links to call points. It is programmable with up to 999 locations in 256 zones to enable future expansion. The touch screen panels enable staff to change a client’s name without adding a keyboard or mouse and display call logging history with a 10 year memory. They also provide an active call list, call types, common call facility, alarm tones, paging and multiple zones.
All the Courtney Thorne systems operate on radio frequency to offer flexibility and avoid the need for hard wiring. The call button at the top of the room unit call point also has Braille for visually impaired clients and wipe clean fronts are incorporated for infection control. Pear push leads are waterproof to IP67 standard, for ease of cleaning and can be linked to a new radio mains switching unit where it is possible to add a multitude of other devices. The system can be adapted to operate any electrically powered device such as lights, curtains, television and stereo. Other peripherals including pressure mats, door alarms, ceiling pull cords, over door lights, mouth and air switch adapters, infra-red triggers and sounder alarms are available and can be added to the system as required.
Price is dependent on the specific needs of the individual home based on a survey, configuration and specific requirements.
