With the outbreak of this global pandemic and its jacked-up expansion within a short period, it has brought the world to a grinding halt. Sanitoriums around the world are being swamped as well as sports arenas and summit venues are also remodeled into Corona wards. Despite the broad enrollment of medical staff in exclusive health centers, patients faced considerable complications in getting medical assistance. During this cutthroat pandemic era, application of smart strats and tech gadgets is the only option left to cope up with the novel virus. During this interval, a wireless nurse call system is demonstrated as manna from heaven to bridge the revivifying hiatus between patient and nurse.

An array of principle scenarios have been exercised at a colossal degree in this malignant warfare between virulent virus and mankind. Amongst them, launching of grand momentary hospitals to give a bed to amplify the influx of an infinite number of patients was an efficient idea. In assistance to establishment of transient hospitals, the latest medical devices and tools just as the emergency nurse calling system presented by Aidbell played a vital role in easing the access of nurses and patients by uprooting the communication gap in order to combat the deadly virus with instant health aid. Their wrist and pendant call buttons are highly systematic to meet the need in emergency resulting in improved patient’s relief, faculty’s connection with sufferers and operational expertise.

 

Technology is on leading-edge in almost every sector so as in the healthcare department. In this sector the lives of patients are considered more important than anything else. A responsible health care center is well aware of the saying that health is wealth and the duty-bound ones won’t deny it in any case. One second of delay in any case can result in heavy consequences that affect the lives in the worst possible ways. In the present circumstances where the patients are surviving on a ventilator without food and enough oxygen time is an essential aspect and not even a second should be spared in providing assistance to the patients. Nurse calling system has made it easy in the busy hospital wards by providing instant communication between patient and nurse. This device sends a spirited signal to the personal devices or receiver device of nurses to respond at the moment. The two call systems can also be connected with other technological systems available at hospitals such as video surveillance systems, it also offers the footage of rooms to the staff in more urgent situations.

Where there is economical back-breaking going on due to the novel virus and due to scarcity of front-line warriors nurse call button is highly recommended that helps in monitoring every bed effectively by the fewer staff members. In other words, reduction of staff leads to price-slashing and therefore mounts the net-profit. In addition to this if the device is linked with other devices such as heart monitors and other medical equipments, it enables the nurse to receive more precise information about the patient’s situation, if the patient’s condition is getting critical due to crucial arrhythmias, panic attacks or hyperthermia they must need an urgent health aid.

One of the best contributions of the nurse calling system is facilitating an individual nurse to perform multi tasks simultaneously. The nurse can keep an eye on different beds and administer several patients synchronously without overlooking any of them. An appropriate utilization of this phenomenal device aids the health care centers in regulating the handling of hiked up numbers of patients with not too many staff members. This device restrains the patients and staff to use elbow grease by keeping both of them just a click away. In this Covid season where the beds are lining the corridors of hospital monitoring the patients were in a critical issue before this tool was launched. Where there is a requirement of mental relaxation with being tested positive for a virulent virus. These medical aid devices have solved this issue by arousing a sense of relief in patients by making them realize that their health assistant is just a click away. If you are looking for an incalculable record of appeased patients, get your hands on this marvelous device with a button as a helping hand.
