Nurse call system (NCS) is an emergency response system used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities by patients to alert nursing staff in the event of an emergency. A basic nurse call button is equipped with a panic alarm button which when pressed alerts the nursing staff or a specific nurse regarding the emergency through a central nurse call station. The alarm can be an audio or visual reminder such as a flashing LED screen or buzzer system or a more integrated and advanced alert reminder through radio pagers, mobile phones or tablets. Such systems allow nursing staff to attend to the emergencies on a priority basis, preventing fatalities and reducing readmissions into the facility. Growing demand for emergency communication devices will lead to development of more innovative healthcare communication devices. Furthermore, the advancements in technologies will allow the entry of affordable and efficient emergency care devices in the market in the coming years.
