It doesn’t take much effort to learn how frustrated clinicians are with the traditional nurse call system. Just type “nurse call system problems” into Google’s search engine, and you’ll get more than 55 million results in a matter of seconds. For years, nurse call systems have been trapped in the past. The traditional nurse call system—a complex system of electrical wiring based on technology from the 1970s—is typically unintelligent and outdated, creating alerts without context. Alerts are often delivered without enough information to properly respond.. Traditional technology is basically an “all call” to anyone and everyone. These non-specific alerting events can lead to alarm fatigue, which occurs when clinicians are exposed to an excessive amount of alarms. Alarm fatigue often results in desensitization and even missed alarms.
