The three hospitals, located in Essex, are:
- Brentwood Community
- St Georges
- Grays Court Community
Brentwood Communications have a long history of supplying the healthcare sector with two-way radios. This is because we understand how each hospital environment requires a unique solution depending on how the radios are used.
For example, we are aware the medical staff need radios that are durable and waterproof. Ones that allow them to communicate with each other at the touch of a button, and offer sophisticated safety options. However, the catering team simply require robust radios that are easy to operate (and need little training), so they can make and receive calls quickly whilst working within strict time constraints.
We always recommend our healthcare customers take advantage of our free on-site trial. This ensures the ultimate radio performance for the client. For instance, after we carried out tests at the three hospitals above – we chose Motorola DP3400 digital radios for Brentwood Community and St Georges, and Motorola CP040 analogue radios for the smaller Grays Court Community hospital. We selected these radios because they matched the brief perfectly – improving the efficiency and security of staff within their particular environment.
Both these types of radios deliver full coverage, which allows users to receive calls anywhere in the hospital buildings and grounds. Their exceptional sound quality means staff can hear every word of broadcasts, even when received in noisy conditions. They provide extended battery power enabling employees to work long shifts without interruption – avoiding the need for recharging. In addition, managers and supervisors have the ability to call up individuals privately as well as talk to the whole group.
The digital DP3400 offers extra safety features that increase the security of hospital staff whilst carrying out their duties. For example, it has an emergency button that instantly alerts colleagues when they require assistance.
A popular option is ‘Lone Worker’. This facility safeguards people who work away from their team by informing senior staff when they are in potential danger. The radio evokes an alarm if they fail to respond to preset periodic bleeps.
The ‘GPS’ option allows managers to track the position of radio users on a screen in real time. This means staff can rapidly locate and help colleagues in an emergency.
