The enhanced operation uses barcodes on the staff name tags and wireless devices, along with barcodes for operations including on-duty, off-duty, and on-break. To go on duty, a staff member simply scans their name tag barcode and then the “on duty” barcode; to take ownership of a wireless device (wireless phone, pocket page, locating tag), the staff then scans the code on the device. The barcode option is available from any Windows®-based computer anywhere on the facility’s LAN. This “everywhere” access helps remove congestion at the nursing station at shift change and also virtual eliminates errors because there is no keyboard entries or mouse clicks required during the operation.
According to Myles Cochran, Jeron’s Director of Marketing, “Barcode scanners are a popular way to enter information in acute care facilities because they are fast and error free. Hospital administrators and managers want tools to make their staff more efficient and this is yet another feature of the Provider 790 nurse call system to streamline workflows for both managers and clinical users.”
As part of the Provider 790 Nurse Call System, the barcode option features:
- Simple barcode scan operation for:
- Wireless device assignment
- No keyboard or mouse interaction required
- With one scan, each caregiver can review their assigned rooms and beds
- Automated break rollover; patient calls to the caregiver “on break” will route to the caregiver’s backup team member’s wireless phone or pocket pager
- Reduces congestion during shift changes with remote barcode operation from any PC on the LAN
- Cross-platform support for both Provider 680 and Provider 790 Nurse Call Systems
