Enhancing Delivery and Response to Code Alerts
A large metropolitan hospital is dissatisfied with their outdated code alert paging system. Patients, and their families, are bothered by the constant noise from the overhead speakers. Doctors and nurses feel they waste too much time figuring out code alerts they missed hearing because they were caring for patients or speaking with other staff members. The hospital wants a system that is more efficient, and quieter.
