By installing a full IP Nurse Call System the hospital has been able to utilise many features that a full IP systems delivers. These include VoIP speech and combined with the Wandsworth Healthcare's new ergonomically designed nurse call handsets, patients and nurses are able to have crystal clear two way conversations.

This enables nurses to understand patients’ needs quicker, as they no longer have to leave the nurse station to speak to the patients, this also limits the number of unnecessary journeys a nurse has to make. The patient request is also dealt with quicker improving the care experience for them.

The nurse call handset not only provides speech capability but also entertainment control. Using an infra-red interface, a patient can control the TV, changing channels and adjust the volume. Again the patient experience is improved, as the handset simplifies their ability to control and communicate.

Additionally, the IPiN Nurse Call system interfaces with a 3rd party staff attack system whilst a site server enables the estates staff to monitor the nurse call system for faults and be able to diagnose all from a single location.
