Stand-Up Bed Alarm - Nurse Call Item # 444BNC (Nurse Call - 1 Black Band) Item # 444BNC2 (Nurse Call - 2 Black Bands) Stand-Up Alarms can be a very helpful way of monitoring a patient?s movement, without physical or chemical restraining. They are normally used with people who stand up from a chair or get out of bed and could fall over. However, sometimes the patients may be able to walk, but due to dementia, they may put themselves or others in danger. Depending on where the Pad is placed on the bed, the Alarm will sound if the patient sits up in bed or if they get out of bed. There is a built-in delay of about 1/2 second. This is so that is someone is just changing position there should not be any false alarms. The Alarm can be kept in the bedroom or placed in the corridor. If placed in the room, the noise may remind the patient not to stand. Sometimes the Pad can be positioned under the mattress. This item is available with a Nurse Call plug which connects into the facility?s nurse call system, so instead of making an alarm sound when a patient gets up, it will set off the nurse?s pager. This is great for night time when other residents are sleeping. You just need to be sure that your nurse call plugs are compatible with the plug we supply (see picture, right, with either 1 or 2 black bands), as not all plugs will work. If your plug is not compatible, then it will mean you need to either have your maintenance department try to change the plug, or use the standard sounding alarm box type of alarm.
