As we get older, often times we need help to ensure our safety and security.  For many elderly people, living in assisted or independent living facilities will provide the support they need.  However, accidents and emergencies can still happen no matter the level of supervision, making it essential to have reliable communication systems in place.  This is where Tektone products and the Tek-CARE500 Wireless Nurse Call System come in, providing advanced security and safety features that give residents the peace of mind and independence they deserve.

What is Tek-CARE500 Wireless Nurse Call System?

The Tek-CARE500 is a UL®Listed wireless nurse call system designed for use in assisted and independent living facilities.  With spread spectrum technology at the helm, the Tek-CARE500 establishes a dependable call transmission, ensuring every call from your residents is received and acted upon promptly. The system includes a complete selection of wireless call transmitters, including pendants, emergency switches, check-in switches, door and window monitors, and motion detectors. All transmitters are powered by batteries that last more than one year, and all are supervised, so you always know your system is always operational.

The Tek-CARE Appliance Server with Tek-CARE500 software is the core of the system.  This advanced server and software combo tracks all transmitters and calls, and sending calls to staff via pagers, email, text messages, or our Tek-CARE Staff App for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Android devices. The system also preserves resident information, including photos, medical information, and contact information for relatives and doctors. All information is clearly displayed and easy to understand on a flat-panel monitor, with the option of having calls automatically transmitted via phone to a central station monitoring facility.

One of the most important features of the Tek-CARE500 is its versatility. It can be customized to meet the unique needs of your facility, whether you need a simple system with a few call transmitters or a complex system that integrates with other healthcare technologies. With the Tek-CARE500, you can rest assured that your residents are safe and secure, and that you have a reliable and flexible system that can grow and adapt with your facility’s needs.

The Tek-CARE500 is also incredibly easy to use. The single-button design of the pendants and call transmitters makes them intuitive and user-friendly, while the system’s wireless capabilities ensure that there’s no need to worry about complicated wiring or installations. Plus, with the ability to customize the system’s settings and notifications, you can be certain that calls are routed to the appropriate staff members or departments, and that residents receive the care they need at the times when they need it.

In addition to its safety and security features, the Tek-CARE500 also offers significant cost savings for your facility. With its wireless design and long-lasting batteries, there is no need to worry about costly installation or maintenance fees. Further, the customizable settings and notifications reduce unnecessary calls and improve staff efficiency, ultimately leading to a more cost-effective and streamlined operation.

Another key benefit of the Tek-CARE500 is its compatibility with other healthcare technologies. Whether you’re integrating the system with an electronic medical records (EMR) system, a nurse call platform, or other healthcare technologies, the Tek-CARE500 is designed to work seamlessly with other systems, giving you the flexibility and versatility you need to provide the best possible care for your residents.

Overview of SF503UL, SF504UL Waterproof Pendants

The SF503UL neck lanyard and SF504UL wristband pendants are small and lightweight, making them easy to wear for extended periods of time. Featuring the range and reliability of 900 MHz, the neck lanyard and wristband options allow residents to choose which option is more comfortable for them, and the pendants are waterproof, meaning they can be worn in the shower or bathtub, outside in the rain, or in other environments where they may be splashed with water or momentarily submerged.

The pendants are designed with a single-button activation, which requires a “press and one-second hold” to trigger. This design ensures that false alarms are less likely to occur, but it’s still easy enough for residents to activate the pendant when they need assistance. When the pendant is activated, it vibrates briefly and its red LED blinks rapidly for five seconds, then blinks slowly until the alarm is cleared.  In addition, the pendants have a fully supervised RF link to ensure reliability. The built-in LED flashes with all transmissions, including supervision, so residents can see that the transmitter is still functioning.

The SF503UL and SF504UL pendants offer a range of benefits for your residents, including increased safety, peace of mind, and independence.  With these pendants, your residents can easily call for assistance if they need it, whether they’re in their room, outside in the garden, or in the shower. This means that they can live with greater confidence, knowing that help is always just a button press away.

In addition, the pendants’ waterproof design means that your residents don’t have to worry about taking off their pendant when they take a shower or bath. This is especially important for those who may have difficulty standing for long periods of time or who may be at risk of falling in the bathroom.

The SF503UL and SF504UL pendants also provide your residents with a greater sense of independence. They can move around the facility more freely, knowing that they can call for help whenever they need it. This can be especially important for those who may feel isolated or who may be hesitant to ask for assistance.

Not only do these pendants provide benefits for your residents, but they also benefit you as a facility manager or owner.  The fully supervised RF link ensures that you always know when a pendant is functioning properly, which means you can quickly identify and address any issues.
