They display call information, allow staff to communicate with residents/patients through the system, and provide customizable options for different levels of staff.
- Additionally, the Tek-CARE160 provides high-quality two-way voice communication, which allows staff to communicate with residents/patients from anywhere in the facility. This can be especially helpful in emergency situations, as it allows staff to quickly assess the situation and provide assistance.
