Courtney Thorne – Altra Care wireless nurse call system

Courtney Thorne shares its latest innovation in wireless nurse call systems technology.

Sometimes nurse call systems are simply referred to as a buzzer that is used by residents to call a nurse for help or assistance. It doesn’t sound like a rocket science, does it?

It’s not that long ago we used mobile phones just to make calls and send an occasional text message. Nowadays making a call is just one small function of our smartphones, which have swiftly replaced the old mobile technology.

With many technological solutions in everyday use in healthcare, evolution is underway. Nurse call buzzers are not immune, but can this traditional technology meet the current needs of busy care homes and become a sustainable technology for the future?

After 50 years in the industry, being at the forefront of development in nurse call solutions, we are confident that there is a better way forward. At Courtney Thorne we look at the current and future requirements within nursing and care home environments.

The care technology we produce stopped being just a buzzer many years ago as we developed the first flat screen technology, similar to that used in personal computing.  We have now taken a leap forward, and from our well-respected wireless nurse call system we developed something even more exciting.

The Altra Care SMART wireless nurse call solution is capable of wirelessly integrating with other care home applications, providing simple to use access to alarms and data. It provides care automation helping staff to be more productive spending less time on paper-based admin tasks. Furthermore, cloud-based technology allows managers direct access to useful reports assisting them with more effective decisions no matter where or when they want them.

Does it cost more than a regular nurse call system to install and operate? Not at all. Why? Altra Care doesn’t require any costly wiring to be installed, therefore installation doesn’t interrupt usual care home activities or resident care, which would be the case if a hard wired or IP nurse call system were chosen. It means our competitively priced system can bring savings of up to 40%.

Courtney Thorne’s Altra Care system has the capability of integrating different devices used throughout a care home into one advanced system to simplify functions, make significant savings and integrate future technology.

This is the reason why we are proud to be known as the UK leaders in nurse call technology, not just for the last 50 years, but also the next.

We are excited about creating the future of care technology and we invite you to be part of it. Contact us and let’s talk about your needs.
