When connected, the Biamp overhead paging system with the Rauland-Borg Nurse Call System becomes a powerful, automated, and accurate announcement, removing human error.

Code Blue Nurse Calls: The Power of Automation

When staff calls a code blue, time is of the essence; when a patient is experiencing life-threatening cardiopulmonary distress, medical facilities need to communicate to the nearest staff and code team quickly, clearly, and accurately.

With an automated code blue nurse call system, like those designed and installed by Marshall Industries, these critical announcements become more efficient and effective. These three unique benefits of an automated nurse call system “code blue” can offer unparalleled value during life-critical situations:

  1. Allows the first responder(s) to focus more time and attention on resuscitation rather than communication.
  2. Offers customizable announcements to alert the closest staff and code team of the code blue’s exact location.
  3. Delivers calm, direct contact to staff in moments of distress.

“Hi, I’m Ryan Hendrickson with Marshall Industries. Today I’m going to be talking about a Biamp overhead paging system along with the Rauland-Borg Nurse Call system and the power of connecting those two together. We can automate code blue processes so that when a code blue is pressed it can automate a response overhead to the paging system which I’ll demonstrate right now. Attention, Code Blue Room 501 Medical ICU. Now the power of this is that like it said medical ICU right there, we can add any suffix line onto that and give clear delineation on where the code blue is coming from and where the staff needs to go to respond to that code. We can make it repeat, we can add different preambles, as you heard a preamble before that. It is really a powerful tool and I would love to talk to you about it. Please give me a call at (801) 266-2428.”

How Automated Code Blue Paging Systems Work

The Rauland Borg Nurse Call System is intuitive and easy to use. When integrated with the Biamp Vocia DSP, announcing a code blue across the overhead paging system takes seconds. The first responder presses the blue ” CODE ” button and then presses the paging system button. Two clicks are all it takes; from there, automation takes over, freeing up the first responder to focus on resuscitation and life-saving activities until support arrives. The announcement that plays from the Biamp Vocia DSP will automatically use the specific room information from which the call was made, as well as any additional customized message you wish to include for code blue announcements.
