Critical Alert Helps Cullman Regional Medical Center Improve Nurse Call Response Times & Staff Productivity

Native Integration With RTLS Enables Efficient Tracking of Staff and Assets, Workflow Optimization

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwired - February 10, 2016) -  Critical Alert Systems, a leading provider of nurse call solutions for hospitals and health systems, today announced that Cullman Regional Medical Center (CRMC) in Cullman, Alabama has successfully implemented its Nurse Call System to enhance clinical workflows, improve quality of care, and increase patient safety. CRMC selected Critical Alert to replace a previous system based on its greater reliability, robust functionality, and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). 

"We are very pleased with the Critical Alert Nurse Call System," stated Cheryl Bailey, RN, BSN, MBA, Chief Nursing Officer at Cullman Regional Medical Center. "The system is very easy to use, and in just a few months, has already demonstrated significant results in the areas of increased staff productivity and the quality of care we were hoping for."

Critical Alert Nurse Call enables healthcare organizations to efficiently centralize, triage, and dispatch alerts and patient requests to the most appropriate staff member's pager, cell phone, or other mobile device instead of sending all alerts directly to an RN. It features native Integration with industry leading clinical communications devices, smart phones, Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS), and other third-party alarms. Native integration virtually eliminates costly middleware and all its associated hardware, software, and maintenance requirements.

Critical Alert Nurse Call utilizes a powerful and unique Workflow Dashboard that integrates diverse systems and devices into a single unified console for detailed reporting and analysis for room-level presence of clinical staff and rounding compliance across all departments and facilities. This streamlines clinical communications between patient and staff, softens the impact of clinical interruptions, and enables a more robust workflow reporting and optimization capability. For more info, read, "10 Things to Know About Nurse Call." Follow Critical Alert Systems on LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube.
