Sentrics Provides Emergency Nurse Call Kits to COVID-19 Temporary Hospitals
Plug-N-Play Solution Stands Up in 2 Hours to Give Patients Direct-Nurse Access
April 14, 2020 – Sentrics, the emerging technology leader in the senior living industry, has launched an Emergency Nurse Call Kit to support temporary hospitals. The solution integrates proven, 15-year technology with a fast-start process to stand up a wireless nurse call solution in less than 2 hours. It gives patients in temporary hospitals—who are often alone and scared—the ability to push a call button to alert the assigned nurse of a need via a personal mobile device.
“As the technology leader in transforming senior living, we’ve been working closely with our communities to provide fast-start solutions that help them manage and engage their high-risk senior populations during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Darin LeGrange, CEO of Sentrics. “Our Sentrics team immediately recognized the opportunity to leverage our proven Ensure360SM emergency call solution in a temporary hospital environment that demands portability and ease of use.”
Built on the Ensure360 life safety foundation, the solution includes a power source, access points, pendants and programming to connect to a nurse’s mobile phone. It runs on the self-forming Zigbee wireless network—not a building’s wifi. Devices find the server, each other, the data route and even self-heal if a device fails. It is easily extensible and the perfect design for physical layout that changes with demand. Installation is as simple as plugging the main server into power and the Internet.
Sentrics is delivering the solution through its Austin-based subsidiary Allen Technologies, which helps hospitals transform the patient experience with interactive, bedside tools. To find out more about the Emergency Nurse Call Kits, go to engagewithallen.com.
