Great Ormond Street Hospital Patient Pagers

Great Ormond Street Hospital is proud of it’s reputation for excellent patient care. The hospital wanted to improve the waiting experience for patients and offer patients waiting for appointments the opportunity to enjoy a more relaxing atmosphere outside of the confines of waiting areas.

Great Ormond Street Hospital IT department worked with Pager Call Systems to specify a patient call system that would enable patients to be called throughout the hospital site and even in the surrounding cafes and park area.

Pager Call Systems installed a network of transmitters to ensure full coverage of the site with links to the Quiet Call Patient Paging System.

The system uses Pager Call Systems network linked transmitters along with the Quiet Call Ultra Pagers which provides communication throughout the site. The patient call system for waiting rooms means that the whole hospital site is now a waiting area.

Chris Hawkins Managing Director of Pager Call Systems comments “It was great working with the technical staff at GOSH, they had a clear vision of their requirements from the start and gave us excellent guidance from the outset. The criteria was tough to deliver but everyone was pleased with the results and the systems are now in 14 departments which use them daily”.

Hospital Patient Flow Management

Managing outpatient appointments in a busy hospital department is often very challenging, it is extremely difficult to guarantee a smooth flow of patients through the department with all appointments running to schedule.

Appointment times can slip behind for may reasons such as:

  • The consultant or nursing staff may need to spend more time than anticipated with some patients
  • The Doctor or medical staff may be delayed or called away
  • Emergency Cases may have to be seen
  • Some patients may arrive late

Hospitals work extremely hard to minimise the impact on appointment times by these events but unfortunately delays are often unavoidable. Using a patient paging system to free patients from the confines of what can often be a congested waiting area will help manage the patient flow process when appointment times slip.

Using patient pagers as part of your departments patient call system allows the patient to leave the hospital  departments waiting area and move to a more relaxed area such as the hospitals cafeteria or restaurant or event step outside to make phone calls to relatives.

Using a Patient Pager also reduces the stress on staff and frees more of their time to deal with clinical issues rather than having to explain to a frustrated patient why they are not being seen on time.

Patient Paging Systems will also help with infection control, not only are Quiet Call Patient Pagers made from antibacterial plastics helping to reduce the spread of infections but reducing the number of patients in a waiting room also helps prevent the spread of infections.

Patient Call Systems used for hospital waiting room management benefits both patients and medical staff.
