With the aim of providing better care to semi-critical patients with coronavirus disease and minimizing the risk of infection for healthcare personnel, the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital has carried out a modular expansion of the centre, which has been equipped with the Neat Wireless Nurse Call system so that healthcare professionals can organize workflow more efficiently and people receive higher quality care.
The expansion is made up of 2 floors with 4 wings each, where 216 people can be accommodated with independent cubicles for the treatment of infectious diseases such as COVID-19.
The technological project has been carried out by Miray Consulting, Neat distributor in Spain. In each wing, Miray Consulting has installed a wireless nurse call system consisting of pull and push buttons. In addition, the caregivers have been equipped with 32 alarm receivers.
The patient only has to pull the device or press a button to request assistance. Given that the receivers are portable, the professionals are fully mobile and can receive the patient’s call at any point in the healthcare facility where they are.
In this time of crisis, assembly of technology in hospitals and temporary health facilities has to be carried out quickly, without affecting the work pace of professionals. The start-up of this wireless solution at the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital took place in less than a week to provide immediate service to the wings of the new building that demanded greater urgency before the summer, in anticipation of possible outbreaks of the pandemic.
David Miró, general manager of Miray Consulting, highlighted that “the most significant advantages of the implementation of a Neat system compared to other manufacturers are the speed of its assembly, configuration and start-up of the solution, as well as its versatility, ease of expansion and excellent value for money ”.
Likewise, the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital is being highly benefited by the reliability of the system and the materials of the equipment, specially designed for effective hygiene.
The Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital is a public health centre, located in the Can Ruti area of Badalona (Barcelona); it is one of the most important hospitals in the autonomous community of Catalonia, being a national benchmark in various areas of health.
This hospital maintains a clear commitment to excellence and professionalism reflected in its mission: “To promote and improve the health and quality of life of the people of our territory through excellent, comprehensive and integrated healthcare, generating and sharing knowledge.”
