Description:  The LifeSaver™ system is a fully software-driven, digital nurse call solution that allows calls to be answered from a patient's bedside or any other location. The system can dramatically increase nursing staff efficiency, reduce clerical activity, and contribute to improved patient care.

LifeSaver™ communications integrate voice and data capabilities in one system that can be configured to serve a 20-bed unit or networked to serve an entire 1500-bed hospital. Its PC-based touch screen nurse control station (NCS) keeps caregivers informed of their nursing unit's status and displays calls in order of priority.

Thanks to the one-button "Nurse Follow" mode, caregivers can move around the facility without missing patient calls. Duty/staff stations installed throughout the facility include an easy-to-read LCD that identifies the calling patient and the patient’s room number. The stations also provide two-way voice communication with that patient.

Patient stations installed in patient’s rooms put patients in touch with the NCS and duty/staff stations and can accept input from peripheral devices such as code blue stations, emergency stations and call origination devices. Patient call origination devices are available with controls for operating TV and radio entertainment.
