First Impulse installs and supports nurse call from Critical Alert Nurse Call Systems, a leading nurse call developer and manufacturer.
Although nurse call systems have been around for decades, there has been a multitude of advances made in infrastructure, integrations with communications, RTLS (Real Time Location System) and other technologies as well as in clinical workflow best practices. Because of the high cost and long-term utilization associated with a nurse call deployment, it is extremely important to stay ahead of the curve in terms of flexibility, usability and interoperability.
Critical Alert creates highly flexible and cost effective nurse call systems, designed for the complexities of today’s clinical settings. They have also pioneered the development of native integrations with industry leading wireless clinical communications devices, beds, RTLS and patient entertainment platforms without the need for middleware.
