Wireless Phone Systems
Wireless Patient-to-Nurse Communication Solutions
Give your nurses the ability to communicate with patients in real time without limiting their mobility.
Wireless Offers Smarter Workflow
The system improves workflow by eliminating unnecessary steps. When a patient pushes a call button, the call gets routed directly to the appropriate caregiver’s mobile phone or re-routed to a back-up caregiver if necessary. Caregivers can respond to calls immediately without first going to the nurse station or patient’s room. Timed saved on each call leads to greater efficiency for staff members and their entire unit. By enhancing your staff’s mobility and allowing them to multi-task more effectively, wireless phone integration also helps support the evidence-based practice of rounding. Since caregivers can talk with their patients while they’re on the go, there are fewer interruptions to the rounding process.

Using staff assignment nurses can quickly and easily select the areas that they want to receive calls from. Selections can range from as small as a few rooms to the entire facility. A wireless nurse call system can be designed to cover a single area on a floor or an entire campus. Pocket paging goes wherever your staff members go no one is anchored to a central nurse station.

Faster responses with detailed information means more satisfied patients/residents and family members. The pocket pager that are part of a Torrence wireless nurse call system will receive notification when the patient call is cancelled, saving time and increasing productivity by coordinating the efforts of skilled nursing staff through better communication.
Wireless Real Time Location Systems
One of the biggest obstacles of efficiency for hospitals is finding staff and equipment quickly, without disturbing patients. Traditionally, there were two ways to find people. One was to walk from room to room and look for them, which wasted valuable time. The other was to page for them, which disturbed patients. Now there is another option: the integrated wireless real time location systems from Torrence Sound.
Torrence Sound exclusively designs and installs Rauland Responder brand of wireless locator systems and patient call systems. Responder systems by Rauland have revolutionized hospital communications by giving nurses a fast and flexible way to communicate without disturbing patients.
Now, with the combined power of wireless Responder nurse call, hospital personnel can quickly, easily, and quietly identify where a particular staff member is and target communications to just that room. The wireless real time locator system uses a small lightweight transmitter that clips on to a shirt or jacket, much like a badge. Once a staff member has logged on to the system and attaches the transmitter, the system is able to locate the staff member until he or she logs off.
When a staff member enters the room of a patient who has called for help, the system automatically cancels any non-emergency calls and registers the staff member in the room. Wireless locators systems from Torrence use IEEE 802.11ac IP and proprietary technology to offer hospitals the ability to:
Locate and Communicate with Caregivers
- Realtime display of Staff & Equipment Location
- Indication in corridor of staff location
- Hands-free canceling of patient calls
- Document response with management software
Too often, the exact location of portable equipment cannot be quickly and easily determined. Rauland asset tracking system locators attached to each piece of portable hardware can help supervisors track and route such equipment. Once a staff member is located with the Rauland nurse call system, communications can be easily targeted to their exact location without the use of intrusive overhead paging. When a staff member enters the room of a patient who has called for help, the the Rauland nurse call system automatically cancels any non-emergency calls and registers the staff member as being in that particular room.
Other nurse call locator devices typically require multi-step procedures that can be confusing and/or time consuming. With Rauland Responder 5, all it takes is three easy steps and a staff member is ready to begin his or her shift.
The staff members simply tell the system who they are, what rooms they’ve been assigned to, and what tag they are wearing. And because Responder 5 and the wireless locator system work off of the same hospital wide network, staff members only have to enter their information one time, even if they work on more than one floor. And in a critical situation, knowing where staff or residents are is immensely important. Wireless real time location information provides hospitals, nursing homes, assisted and independent living facilities a means of two way communication and vital statistics about the person, such as temperature and posture.
