Contribute To A Healing Environment By Automating Code Blue Processes
Emergency calls, such as Code Blue, require immediate response, but can create disruption when they occur. Used in combination, Responder systems can provide visual indicators, instantaneous notification to wireless devices and overhead paging capability to automate many steps of the process reliably and minimize noise commonly associated with these events.
Visual notification is an important component to minimizing noise. Responder can turn on corridor lights for directional lighting to visually guide a code response team to the correct location. From the moment team member(s) walk into the unit, the flashing blue lights can lead them directly to the right location; thus saving precious time where every second matters.
Notification of the Code Blue location can be instantly sent to wireless devices carried by the code responder team, a specific department, or the entire facility. From shift to shift, Responder is flexible so it can adjust to meet each shift's unique needs.
Responder can automatically page/speak the alarm and location over the PA system. This guarantees a clear and accurate announcement every time - vital to eliminating confusion or repeated announcements.
Integrate With Cardiac Equipment For Code Blue Coverage Anywhere
When a remote defibrillator is accessed anywhere in the facility, the Responder system can notify your operators immediately. This can serve two purposes: 1) ensure that the overhead announcement is made and 2) notify the code blue team, if necessary.
Efficient Workflow Through Centralized Telemetry
Centralizing telemetry monitoring gives your facility efficiencies and value. When a telemetry monitor alarms, the Responder system can notify telemetry of the alarm and the location/room. The telemetry technician can then view the alarm on the telemetry monitor and decide what action to take. A text message can be sent to the RN in charge of that patient and/or a reminder can be set, lighting the light outside the patient room and alerting a caregiver. This helps ensure that the most critical alarms get to the correct caregiver every time.
