Systems Technologies Introduces Resident Elopement Beacons

Automatically sends a wander event to staff with resident name and location when a programmed pendant is detected.

Hayden, Idaho (May XX, 2012) – Systems Technologies, an industry leader in wireless nurse call and emergency call systems for healthcare and life safety applications, has introduced elopement beacons to their Vision Link and MicroVision 400Z wireless call systems. Elopement beacons increase patient safety by reducing the risk of a resident wandering from the safety of a monitored area. The National Institute for Elopement Prevention and Resolution describes elopement as, “When a patient or resident who is cognitively, physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or chemically impaired; wanders away, walks away, runs away, escapes, or otherwise leaves a caregiving facility or environment unsupervised, unnoticed, and/or prior to their scheduled discharge.” Elopement beacons warn medical staff when a resident is leaving the building, entering a stairwell or elevator, or approaching a restricted area.

Elopement beacons may be fully integrated with the nurse call system or used as standalone wandering patient notification at a fraction of the price of its competitors.

The staff alert feature includes the patient’s name as well as the exit point or door the patient is leaving or entering. Alerts can sound and display on a wireless console or pocket pager, be sent as a text message to a cell phone or email address, dial one or more telephone numbers and deliver a voice message, announce the elopement event on two way radios and can also integrate with a variety of wireless telephone systems.

The wrist transmitter can include a push for help button the resident can use to alert staff when they need assistance or a plain face if preferred. It also includes a choice of removable or non-removable wristband, a user replaceable coin cell battery and active status LED. The wrist transmitter is visually and functionally identical in appearance to the transmitter used by independent or assisted living residents so the patient does not feel marked in any way.

Vision Link Wireless Nurse Call System Now Listed to UL1069 Edition 7 "Hospital Signaling and Nurse Call Equipment"

Vision Link is One of the Very Few Wireless Systems to Meet This Standard

Hayden, Idaho (October XX, 2012) – Systems Technologies, a leading manufacturer of wireless nurse call and emergency response systems since 1994, has announced that their flagship product, the Vision Link Wireless Nurse Call System, has now been fully tested and listed to the new Edition 7 standard for UL1069 Hospital Signaling and Nurse Call Equipment. Vision Link was formerly listed under Edition 6. In states that now require Edition 7 Vision Link can be installed in all care levels including skilled and acute. This makes Vision Link ideal in Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) that offer independent living as well as assisted living and skilled care. Staff can use one system throughout to eliminate learning curves and nursing errors.

Vision Link combines a multitude of functionality designed and engineered to provide patient focused care along with safety and security for residents and staff alike. Each unit, floor or building can have a console that displays calls from just that area. The server handles all staff notification and allows management to enter programming that automatically uploads to each unit console. Management can additionally view all alarm events real time, obtain call analysis reports, change staff notification assignments and receive notification of escalated or unanswered calls, whether on site or off-site. The system offers eight types of alarm notification including pager, cell phone, wireless phone, email, two-way radio, central station and more.

VisionPro Provides Wireless Emergency Notification in Any Setting

Hospitals, Courthouses, Airports, Hospitals - Anywhere Anyone Needs to Press a Button For Help

Hayden, Idaho (November 21, 2012) - Systems Technologies' Vision Pro is a wireless emergency call system designed to provide prompt, accurate notification and messaging services in critical situations. Applicable settings for these services include private residences, gated communities, office complexes, outpatient hospitals, psychiatric clinics, schools and college campuses, airports, convalescent centers, retiree apartment complexes and assisted living facilities. Depending on the setting, the Vision Pro system can deliver a range of life-saving information to centralized computer consoles or directly to individual staff members. Facilities that use the system can typically reduce their costs in several different ways.

In hospitals and similar settings, Vision Pro can act as a nurse call system and gives nurses and other important personnel a way to monitor and respond to emergencies throughout a facility. In addition to life-saving situations directly related to individual patient welfare, nurse call systems allow staff to track the status of stairwell doors, exit doors, smoke detectors and other vital systems or locations. Each individual setup can be customized to the needs of the facility in question. In addition to computer consoles, staff members can receive wireless alerts from the system on devices that include cell phones, two-way radios, personal pagers, PDAs, wireless telephones and wireless readerboards. If desired, facility managers can also use the system to track staff members.

In addition to its ability to issue a nurse call in a medical setting, Vision Pro can be used to issue an emergency call in a wide variety of non-medical settings. In these settings, as in medical environments, the system can monitor motion or glass breakage in sensitive areas, detect smoke, monitor doors and monitor the on/off status of critical equipment. The system can also issue emergency alerts to Homeland Security or other important outside agencies.

Not all facilities have the same needs when it comes to relaying emergency information. Some organizations need nothing more than a simple pager system that reaches a small number of employees, while other organizations need to reach hundreds of employees, or send emergency messages only to certain locations or personnel. Vision Pro is completely scalable to these varying needs, and as a result, companies that use the system can choose a setup that meets their current needs, rather than choosing a setup that they will eventually grow into over time. This flexibility can provide significant short-term cost savings, and also allows companies to upgrade as needed while still keeping their costs at a minimum.

When facilities that use an emergency call system expand, they typically also need to expand their current system to new areas, including entirely new buildings or new wings in existing buildings. If the facility uses a wired system to carry its emergency signals, administrators will inevitably incur considerable expense in order to install the required wires, as well as the conduit needed to carry and protect these wires. Vision Pro, however, is a wireless system that uses modern 900 MHz technology capable of broadcasting a signal over an area roughly equivalent to 100 acres. Administrators who use this system can freely expand within this area while avoiding the expenses associated with wired solutions. In this way, they can significantly reduce the overall cost of organizational expansion.

System Technologies Releases the Industry's Only Four Function Personal Pendant Transmitter

Unique pendant transmitters combine wander alarm, fall alarm, location and push-for-help all in one wearable device


Hayden, ID (May XX, 2013) – Systems Technologies manufactures wireless nurse call and emergency call systems with unique 900MHz spread spectrum pendant transmitters that combine wandering patient alarm, automatic fall alarm, resident location and push-for-help in a conveniently-sized, wearable device that clients find easy to wear and to use.

Systems Technologies Now Offers Flexible Two Way Radio Staff Notification

Provides voice announced nurse call alarms and two way communication with other staff members

Hayden, Idaho (July XX, 2013) – Systems Technologies, a leading provider of emergency call systems for nursing homes, assisted living centers and continuing care retirement communities now offers lightweight, inexpensive two way radios for use with the Vision Link Wireless Nurse Call System and VisionPro and MicroVision 400Z Wireless Emergency Call Systems. Staff receives voice notification of any alarm event assigned to them in system programming. Flexible escalation automatically sends the alarm to additional staff members if the event is not canceled within the pre-programmed time interval at the wireless station, fall alarm transmitter, pendant, or any wireless device that originally transmitted the call for assistance.

This allows staff to receive notifications completely handsfree and still be able to call for assistance. If they are busy they can let other employees know so someone else can respond to the alarm and help the patient more quickly. The radio is equipped with a lightweight and nearly invisible surveillance style “headset” so that staff receives a voice announcement as each alarm is sent to them and call cancel notifications if someone else gets to the patient first. A tiny microphone clips to their lapel and activates with a single button press so they can let others know where they are and what they need.

An automatic override feature ensures that the alarms are always announced by silencing any “chatter” on the channel while a new alarm is announced. Managers will also love the fact that they have their own channel separate from the rest of the staff in case they need to contact each other. Vision Link, VisionPro and MicroVision 400Z clients can call Systems Technologies to receive two radios for a 30 day free trial.


Systems Technologies is well known for their VisionLink nurse call systems and VisionPro emergency call systems. These flexible systems can be customized to meet the needs of any size healthcare facility to provide improved safety for patients and managed freedom for residents. In addition to a wide variety of wireless flush mount style stations Systems Technologies also offers unique multi-function personal pendant transmitters with automatic fall alarm, wandering patient notification, patient location, push for help and call cancel functions. These systems can also be used to monitor emergency exits, stairwell doors, water overflow, temperature change or other hazards. The alarm information can notify any combination of computer or wireless desktop consoles, LED reader-boards, central monitoring station, IPADS, email addresses, cell phones, pocket pagers, wireless phones and, of course, two way radios.

Managers love the Vision Link and Vision Pro remote capability that give them the ability to review events, enter programming changes, print reports and make necessary assessments to ensure the safety and comfort of patients or residents from on site or off site. They sleep better at night knowing that the program is always backed up and help is only a toll-free phone call away. Every safety feature has been incorporated into a total solution engineered to be easy to set up and simple to use.

VisionPro Wireless Emergency System Ensures Staff Safety

Most nurses attacked or faced aggressive patients on the job

Hayden, Idaho (March XX, 2014) In a survey of 4,900 nurses and caregivers a worrying insight into the extent of workplace violence has emerged. The survey found that almost 70 per cent of ­respondents had experienced violence or aggression in the past year. Patients were the source of 40 per cent of cases of violence and aggression, with another 40 per cent perpetrated by ­patients’ friends and relatives. About 32 per cent of respondents said they had received no training in managing violence and aggression; and workplace stress resulted in 30 per cent of respondents taking days off work . The recommendations to reduce workplace violence for nursing staff included better security, improved workplace design and identification of patients of risk to staff. The statistics are even worse for workers in the mental health field.

The VisionPro Wireless Emergency Call System is specifically designed to increase staff safety and reduce the workplace violence by providing a personal panic button that each staff member can wear and press if feeling threatened and that automatically transmits a fall alarm if they go down. This immediately notifies on site security including name and location so that help can be immediately dispatched. If the alarm is not canceled at the originating device within the number of minutes selected. the alarm event can send mass notification and/or notify the local 911 center. Alarm events can notify computer workstations, iPads, iPods, pocket pagers, cell phones, two way radios, central monitoring stations and more.

In addition to improved staff safety, VisionPro offers multi-button stations, patient stations and emergency pull stations for infusion, clinic and emergency areas. Other options include vandal resistant emergency stations, corridor and zone LED lights, motion detectors and door/window transmitters for med rooms, storage rooms or other areas where security should be notified if after hours entry is detected.
