New Cranleigh Health Centre opens its doors to ADT
Leading facilities management and building services company EIC Ltd, has specified ADT Fire and Security to install its Medicall® 800 Nursecall system at the new Cranleigh Health Centre in Surrey. The robust system complete with staff attack, double panic buttons and disabled WC alarm equipment, has been installed to enable staff to respond to patient calls quickly and efficiently throughout the new building.
Owned by NHS Surrey (Formally Surrey PCT), the £5.5m facility has been built to house the village’s health visitors and district nurses.Offering state-of-the-art facilities, the building boasts 19 consulting rooms, 12 for doctors, seven for nurses, three treatment rooms and one minor surgery room. It replaces an outdated-building, which was demolished in 2011. When the new facility was designed, ADT’s Medicall® 800 Nursecall system was specified as it could deliver a robust care communication system, providing numerous call functions, direct communication options, different answer variants and interfaces to other electronic systems. The system will also help to improve efficiencies as well as enhance patient wellbeing.
The system installed at Cranleigh Health Centre also includes a Staff Attack system in the reception area, which with the simple press of a button sends a help signal via locally cited ceiling sensors to wherever backup staff are located. The level of alarm and call type will then indicate on all local LCD displays.
“The fact that ADT was able to deliver multiple systems at Cranleigh Health Centre was a huge advantage for us and one that really simplified the installation process,” commented Richard Sansom, Senior Project Engineer at EIC Ltd. “We will definitely look to partner with ADT again in the future, especially where safety and security is of the upmost importance.”
The Medicall® 800 nurse call system has been specifically developed for hospitals, retirement and nursing homes, rehabilitation clinics and assisted living developments.
