RTLS Makes Nurse Call Better

Incorporated Workflow

Critical Alert pioneered the use of RTLS to passively close workflow events, eliminating the need for caregivers to manually press buttons on staff stations. Because CommonPath can monitor the credentials of the staff member assigned to a particular badge, it can automatically determine whether or not that staff member’s presence should end the workflow (eg. only an RN can fulfill a pain med request).

This is critical when hospitals utilize Bed Alarms as the systems.  Many nurse call platforms cannot silence the bed alarm if the caregiver is in the room with the patients.  Leading to unnecessary emergency calls and alarm fatigue.

Consider This

Integration of Real Time Location System (RTLS) technology into the CommonPath nurse call system creates substantial gains in workflow efficiency, bed-level presence awareness and reporting.

The use of RTLS reduces staff workload, minimizes infections (buttons do not need to be touched), and manages caregiver’s time in patient rooms.

Critical Alert offers our own RTLS system that is fully embedded in the CommonPath Enterprise platform. Whether your team may be considering an enterprise-wide deployment or just within a single unit, CommonPath RTLS provides a cost-effective way to gain workflow efficiencies, room-level presence and substantial reporting capabilities.

Role-Based Cancellation of Alerts/Alarms – RTLS can be used to automatically cancel alarms when entering room, rather than having to interact with in-room hardware devices. Uniquely, CommonPath can do this by role.for example only RNs can cancel a pain med request.

Analytics, Bed-Level Presence & Staff Location

Integrating RTLS with Critical Alert Nurse Call helps nursing administration can gain deeper insights into the workflows and staffing levels by floor or unit. This bed-level awareness detail allows nurse administration to generate relevant actionable intelligence on the operational efficiencies within their departments.

Hospital Asset & Device Tracking

RTLS integration can help identify and track the location of medical devices and equipment (ex: IVs/pumps/wheelchairs/etc.) throughout a client facility. Lightweight, small form-factor IR or ultrasound badges transmit the location of equipment to receivers in rooms and corridors located throughout the hospital.

Rounding & Bedside Report Compliance

Effective rounding should reduce the amount of nurse call requests. However, without the data necessary to demonstrate this dynamic, nurse leadership is challenged to establish whether their rounding practices are truly addressing patient needs and safety.

RTLS Integration with CommonPath Nurse Call

Bryan Vest, MSN, RN – Decatur Morgan Hospital discusses how his team uses RTLS reporting to visualize nurse movement, correct gaps in efficiencies and increase effectiveness of their clinical workflow.

Native Integrations with Industry Leading RTLS Manufacturers

CommonPath natively integrates with Sonitor®, Stanley Healthcare (AeroScout), Centrak® and Versus®, offering optimized clinical workflow, increased productivity and enriched reporting detail without the need for costly middleware. Our integrations are developed to operate seamlessly with these manufacturers regardless of the underlying sensory networks: radio frequency (RF) optical infrared (IR) or acoustic (ultrasound).
