Critical Alert announced today it has partnered with TekTone to offer Rapid Deployment Kits to help hospitals contend with COVID-19 surge capacity. Designed to be utilized in any environment, this portable, software-based, wireless patient call system can be easily implemented with minimal system maintenance, bringing reliable, connected care to any setting.

Driving the system is Critical Alert's CommonPath Canopy software which integrates multiple nurse call and caregiver communication systems into a single, cohesive platform. For wireless Tone/Visual infrastructure, Critical Alert is utilizing TekTone's easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy nurse call hardware.

The Rapid Deployment Kit provides wireless, waterproof pendants that patients wear around the neck, on the wrist or can be attached to the bed. When help is needed, the patient simply presses the pendant button which emits a notification to the nurse console as well as to mobile devices (even BYOD). Wireless patient stations with call cords, emergency notification buttons, and auxiliary jacks for medical devices can also be integrated if the setting allows for it.

"In this time of crisis, hospitals are expanding to accommodate the tremendous influx of patients and need a dependable communication system," said John Elms, CEO of Critical Alert. "Our Rapid Deployment Kit blankets surge capacity areas with a reliable, easy-to-deploy wireless nurse call system, with connectivity to mobile devices and robust reporting capabilities which are critical in these temporary hospital settings," continued Elms.

Features/Benefits:

  • Deploys quickly and expands easily – An entire system can be set-up and running in a matter of hours
  • No construction needed – plug-&-play hardware, repeaters use standard AC outlet(s)
  • Reusable – Box up and re-use anytime
  • Independent wireless network – 900 MHz proprietary network provides maximum coverage and does not burden existing Wi-Fi network(s)
  • Multi-Unit display – Access and view each temporary unit or location separately or centralized on nurse console displays
  • Integration – Use with existing wireless devices such as smartphones and pagers
  • Pre-programmed wireless pendants - pendants are programmed into the system before arrival

"TekTone is here to support the Army Corps of Engineers with stand-up hospitals and existing facilities with a diverse platform of durable nurse call solutions. We are prepared to provide sites with the technologies they need in a time crunch. This Critical Alert partnership allows sites the ability to achieve quick, rapid results in a time when life safety is of the essence," said John Mira-Knippel, president of TekTone.
