Faster response times and clearer communication

Creating and maintaining a safe and secure environment is essential for staff and patients. We are all seeing and hearing about the day-to-day pressures faced by the NHS and private healthcare, but communication shouldn’t be one. 

Reliable two-way radios are paramount in healthcare settings as they help speed up response times to assistance requests and emergencies by connecting staff instantly at the touch of a button. Where there isn’t time, reaching colleagues can even be done without verbal communication; with the constant evolution of the two-way radio industry, features and applications such as Lone Worker and Man Down provide increased safety while offering reassurance and peace of mind.

This way, personnel always have undeniable and unbiased footage of what occurred in such situations. Additionally, video from body cameras can be accessed from the control room in real time, which makes for quicker response times to emergencies and urgent assistance requests.

The Motorola VB400 is easy to adapt to your team’s workflow.

Our frequently asked questions

What problems poor communication can cause in hospitals?

Poor communication within the healthcare sector (i.e. hospitals, care homes and GP surgeries) could cause problems such as:

  • Missed messages and assistance requests
  • Poor patient experience
  • Reduced efficiency of hospital operations
  • Difficulty assigning tasks
  • Reduced security for staff and patients
  • Lack of support and assistance in the case of an emergency

Factors to consider when choosing a healthcare radio:

  • The size of your hospital – how much coverage is needed?
  • What battery life is needed – how long are the shifts of your personnel?
  • The size of your healthcare team – how many people will be using the radios?
  • Your budget – we cater for all budgets and requirements, finding a solution suitable for your communication needs
  • Will you require any accessories such as those listed above?

Lone worker protection

With staff working in the healthcare sector being open to risks, it’s crucial to ensure that everyone in the workplace adheres to UK laws set in place.

A digital lone worker alarm system provides increased staff safety by giving users the means of raising the alarm within their healthcare setting in the case of an emergency; this allows you to follow set health and safety policies while being fully reportable for insurance mitigation.

You can have a support package through your digital two-way radios to ensure all your staff are within easy reach in real-time. By utilising the PTT (push-to-talk) function on a two-way radio, the user, when notified, presses and releases to confirm that they are OK. If the user does not communicate within the predefined time, the radio will enter ‘emergency mode’. The radio will warn the user to respond; if they do not, it will set the emergency procedure into play, and the radio controller and other users will then be notified.

Benefits of integrating a lone worker app with your two-way radio system:

  • Simple Alarm Activation – A dedicated panic alarm giving peace of mind to your lone workers.
  • Fully Reportable – Significantly reduces financial risk to the business with a fully recordable and reportable system, which can assist with insurance mitigation.
  • Position Reporting – Utilising built-in GPS, the user location data information is sent to a central point during an emergency.
  • Lower Costs – Deploy without the need for a second device.
  • Inclusive Emergency Calls – No monthly tariff charges.
