Transmit nurse calls from call systems to mobile caregivers

Nursing homes should not only provide the necessary health care for their residents, but also enable them to live in dignity and an encouraging environment. However, the nursing service has to face growing challenges: The daily work of the nursing staff is characterized by extremely demanding working conditions at wards with a high workload. Many activities have to be coordinated and handled with a great deal of documentation effort. In addition, nursing staff have to accept frequent interruptions in the work process and at the same time meet the demands of residents and relatives.

Create the time you need for your top priority

The constant tension resulting from this not only makes nursing work appear less attractive, it is also at the expense of one of the central aspects of nursing: human attention. But this is exactly what caregivers consider as the original motivation for their work: they understand their profession as a highly meaningful, helping activity, which focuses on people.

Relieving the workload of nursing staff, improving communication between them and the residents, simplifying work processes and creating more time for caring is therefore one of the priority areas for DAKS in the field of health care.

The Solution with DAKS

/A%20resident%20activates%20the%20call%20button
A resident activates the call button
Many reasons can cause a resident to make a nurse call by using the call button in his room or on his portable emergency call device. Not all of them require immediate action by the nurse. The call button is not only used for urgent requests, but also when a resident simply wishes to obtain some information or have a window opened.
/DAKS%20directs%20the%20nurse%20call%20to%20the%20assigned%20nurse
DAKS directs the nurse call to the assigned nurse
Nurse Anna receives the nursing call on her mobile terminal. On the display, Nurse Anna can see from which resident the call originated. She only receives nursing calls from residents who are personally assigned to her. This reduces the total number of calls for each nurse and reduces the number of interruptions. If Nurse Anna is busy with an emergency and is therefore indispensable, she can reject an incoming nurse call and forward it to other nurses. When she accepts the call, the nurse call alarm stops for all other nurses. A green flashing corridor signal lamp indicates that a nurse is taking care of the nurse call.
/Talking%20to%20the%20resident%20by%20telephone%20clarifies%20his%20needs
Talking to the resident by telephone clarifies his needs
Without having to leave her current work place, Nurse Anna can establish a voice connection to the resident at the touch of a button - via a suitable room intercom or the telephone in the room. The dialogue with the resident helps her to evaluate the priority of the call and to decide whether an immediate interruption of her workflow is necessary. This allows Nurse Anna to save many trips and better organize her work. The residents receive an immediate response to their calls and feel looked after well. If the resident just wanted information and had his request answered by telephone, Nurse Anna can cancel the nurse call alarm right from her telephone device.
/Nursing%20duties%20can%20be%20organized%20effectively
Nursing duties can be organized effectively
If the resident's request does not require an immediate reaction, but cannot be clarified by telephone either, Nurse Anna can "memorize" the nurse call on her device. The signal light continues to show a green flashing light indicating that a nurse has accepted the call. Nurse Anna can now complete her task in the appropriate time and subsequently look after her "memorized" nurse call. Should a preset time span be exceeded before her arrival at the "memorized" resident, the complete alarm will be restarted.
/The%20entire%20alarm%20process%20is%20documented
The entire alarm process is documented
DAKS provides a detailed logging of all broadcast calls triggered by the call system. The logging supports the documentation of nurse call processing and nursing activities and can be used as an effective and audit-proof basis for the evaluation and optimization of processes and nursing quality.
