March 5, 2013 – Spectralink Corporation (“Spectralink”), a global leader in wireless solutions for the workplace, has announced the Spectralink Staff Safety Solution, developed to help solve the ever-increasing issue of safety in the workplace for nurses and other healthcare professionals.
The Spectralink Staff Safety Solution integrates into the hospital’s existing mobile communications infrastructure, and detects a variety of situations that may indicate that a nurse is in danger or in need of assistance. This customised solution can range from a user-initiated call for help to automatic alarms and notifications when a nurse has fallen, is running, or incapacitated in some way.
“It is surprising to many people that the healthcare field can be a dangerous work environment, particularly the overnight shift in the ER or work in a psychiatric facility. Injuries and even fatalities occur far too frequently,” commented Mike Lanciloti , Spectralink Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. “The Spectralink Staff Safety Solution can integrate with many complementary nurse applications; ensuring nurses have all critical alarms and information on a single handset.”
“Being in an overnight shift at a hospital can be scary at times,” said Jaime Dibrowa, nurse ambassador for Spectralink. “Having this product in my hand would give me peace of mind that I could get help if needed.”
The Spectralink Staff Safety Solution integrates with software from key worldwide partners to create a reliable and effective solution to ensure nurse safety. The solution is already shipping on the DECT platform and will be available on the new, rugged Spectralink 8441 and 8452 Wi-Fi handsets in the second quarter of 2013.
