UL-1069 Nurse Call Hardware

Our hardware is designed with the end-user in mind.  They are simple to use, easy to service and reliable.  We keep our costs down by putting nurse call intelligence in your data center rather than in our hardware. Critical Alert hardware is intentionally engineered not to be “smart” to prevent every nurse call upgrade from becoming a construction project.

Nurse call is not about the dome light, patient station or pillow speaker (despite their necessity). Rather, nurse call is about creating a seamless workflow for your clinicians, enabling mobility and providing informative analytics on clinical effectiveness and patient experience. Our focus is to provide the most lightweight, flexible, and affordable UL 1069 option available on the market.
