BROOKFIELD, Wis., Oct. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RF Technologies ®, a leading provider of RFID healthcare safety and security solutions, has released a resident safety solution that combines fall management and wireless nurse call for added safety and simplified care.
The restraint-free Code Alert ® CA630 Wireless Fall Management Solution monitors residents at risk of falling and integrates with the Quick Response ® Premiere Wireless Nurse Call Solution.
The CA630 alarm unit easily hangs or hooks on wheelchairs, beds, or chairs. To use the device, no-slip bed or chair sensor pads, in addition to the nurse call cord, easily connect to the unit. If weight is removed from the pad, or the call cord plunger is pressed, caregivers are notified instantly via an audible or silent alert at the alarm unit, and an alert at the central computer station.
Calls for assistance can be routed to mobile phones, pagers or LED displays with the resident's location for immediate notification and a faster response. Software stores alarm data so staff can review response times, care times, and generate reports for the Joint Commission, families, and community management.The unit can run on battery or AC power to accommodate mobile or stationary monitoring. Silent Alarms for a Quieter EnvironmentAdjustable volume is a key feature of the CA630 solution. If the volume is at the minimum setting, all alarms at the unit will be silent, helping reduce noise levels and alarm fatigue for a quieter community. "One of our primary goals is to provide communities with solutions that contribute to a home-like environment. The silent alarm feature of the CA630 is just one more way we demonstrate our ability to provide a safety solution that doesn't interfere with resident care and community life," said Michelle Dalton, marketing director. Simplifying CareThe CA630 includes an auto-on feature which starts monitoring when a resident is positioned on a bed or chair pad. To ensure residents are protected, a built-in tamper alert will sound if the pad or call cord become disconnected from the alarm unit. Cushioned bed and chair pads are designed without fused seams or hard edges for comfort and safety. Multiple pad models are available, and all pads are latex-free.
