X-Ray Intercom System Description
To ensure effective communications between several departments in a medical environment an exceptional intercom system is an absolute necessity. Intercoms guarantee that medical and auxiliary staff are able to make the most of the often limited resources that can be found in modern hospital facilities.
An X-Ray intercom system can incorporate calls to reception, waiting and treatment rooms, staff rest rooms or more specialist areas such as X-Ray, MRI and EBCT suites. These essential communicative features are simply not available on standard telephone systems.
It does go without saying, but clear and effective communication is highly important in any medical environment. In some extreme cases, it could even save lives. As an example, key members of staff of various different departments will often need to converse and be brought together quickly – which can easily be facilitated by an intercom system.
In a non-emergency setting, intercom systems represent a quick and easy way for communications between members of staff, and with their patients too. These can be set-up with a direct line between different departments and rooms – which maximizes efficiency and minimizes waiting times.
A typical station for a door entry system would be a single button, stainless steel flush or surface mount, whereas for internal areas a desk or wall station is far more preferable. In areas where medical bacterial control is imperative then a clean room and theatre station is the only safe option.
Many of these intercom systems are operated using hands-free technology too, which means that the spread of germs and bacteria which could occur with a traditional telephone receiver can be prevented.
They are fitted with a protective membrane too which covers all components, including the keypad, microphone and loudspeaker. In addition, the stations are normally recessed into a surface and sealed, which prevents contamination before it can begin.
