Using 2-Way Radio & Using 2-Way Radios in Healthcare Facilities

By: Joe Wood

Saving time means saving lives in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and assisted living facilities. These environments are fast-paced, requiring constant and reliable communication. And with two-way radios, vital information can be delivered to health care providers instantly.

By relaying critical and timely messages, two-way radios increase efficiencies in busy, non-stop health care facilities. With a variety of features available, the radios are a snap to use and make communicating among staff members nearly effortless.

Instant Communication Is Easy With Two-Way Radios

Today's two-way radios are compact, lightweight, and very easy to use. A simple push-to-talk button on the handset gives the user instant access to co-workers. And a headset accessory can make that communication even easier. Add the vibration feature found on some models and you have a quiet, discreet method for relaying messages among hospital staff members.

Two-way radios (or walkie-talkies) make vital, time-sensitive tasks easy. You can...

&bull respond to an emergency quickly,

&bull dispense medication to patients and residents on schedule,

&bull coordinate activities among residents easily,

&bull maintain schedules among groups of people,

&bull and monitor patients continuously.

In addition, the voice-activated models allow staff to easily monitor ill or infirm patients. Two-way radios make it simple to keep communication flowing and staff members always accessible.

Two-Way Radios Increase Profits

Providing better service to patients, residents, and visitors means greater profits for health care facilities. And instant communication improves productivity of employees, again adding to the bottom line. Keeping staff members continuously accessible means fewer delays in needed care and less employee wasted hours.

Business two-way radios are more affordable than other forms of 2-way communication systems. No monthly fees or extra charges for additional features. And today's business two-way radios are sturdy and rugged-they're designed to withstand drops and bumps, making them an economical investment.

Powerful Technology That's Easy To Use

Powerful and with numerous features available, there's a two-way radio to meet all your needs. The FCC has designated specific frequencies to be used by businesses, eliminating unwanted interference or chatter from casual users.

Many 2-way radio models have a cloning feature to allow all the settings to be quickly transferred from handset to handset. The keypad lock ensures the settings won't be accidentally changed. And because two-way radios are easy to use, very little time is needed for training. They can be integrated into your business promptly and effectively.

Dependable 2-way communication is a matter of life and death in health care facilities. You can count on the reliability of two-way radios during emergencies and everyday activities alike.
