Queen's Hospital, Burton-on-Trent
At the time of tendering Static Systems had supported Queen's Hospital for over 25 years. The existing nurse call system comprised ‘conventionally-wired’ equipment nearing end-of-live which was becoming increasing difficult to support as system faults increased and components become obsolete.
As part of the selection process, Static Systems - along with two competitor ‘wireless’ providers - was asked to demonstrate proposals for staff evaluation. Static Systems’ ‘wired’ nurse call solution was voted the preferred option because of its design, robustness and ease of use.
With almost 450 beds - and the necessity to carry out work in a ‘live’ environment, it was no easy task, but one that Static Systems has done many times before.
Working closely with the project management team to ensure understanding of their specific requirements, Static Systems assisted with the development of design proposals and also provided installation and commissioning.
Work was carried out on a phased basis, a ward at a time, utilising the existing containment and back boxes in the majority of systems.
The various ward based systems were connected together using the Trust’s Local Area Network (LAN).
The infrastructure put in place allows ‘remote access’ and ‘data analysis’ to be used by the Trust: Live information from two remote sites - Sir Robert Peel and Samuel Johnson Community Hospitals, can be reported back to the Queen's Hospital Estates Team.
Features of the system include:
• Patient-to-staff call
• Staff-to-staff emergency call
• Codem sound entertainment
System: Codemlon™ nurse call systems connected using the Trust's Local Area Network (LAN).
