Healthcare environments such as hospitals, doctors’ surgeries, day centres and clinics demand reliable coverage to ensure quick response times and accurate communications.
Many staff in healthcare environments work alone and as such can be put in situations where they are vulnerable. One remedy for this is to provide staff with analogue hand held two-way radios with panic buttons. If the panic button is pressed a signal is immediately sent to all radios in the vicinity alerting staff that there is a problem. The radio will also send the alert to landline and mobile phones, e-mail and public address systems.
Large facilities such as hospitals require multiple channels for voice and data and for this we can provide digital or trunked radio systems which have a variety of benefits:
A lot of hospital equipment does not operate properly if high power devices such as two-way radios are used nearby. However, Scotia Radio can provide low power systems which use distributed antennae. This gives staff strong, reliable coverage to communicate throughout the hospital whether from below ground, upper floors or grounds and can also communicate with emergency helicopter services.
It is vital that hospital management know where their porters and maintenance crews are, and what their workload and availability is. Our systems include dispatch solutions giving management the ability to co-ordinate workers with tasks and ensure an efficient communication system throughout all work areas.
