Nurse Call Overview

In the hospital, communication between patients and caregivers is not just important — it’s vital. Voalte Nurse Call from Hillrom acts as a lifeline, providing a secure, reliable platform that scales across your health system.

The Voalte Nurse Call system works as a hospital call bell system that sends detailed patient notifications directly to your team, so they can provide quality care, faster. Automating your care environment — together with corresponding awareness of your patients’ needs — promotes a quiet environment, and can help your team deliver proactive care to keep patients safe.

With nurse call technology, system administrators benefit from centralized call button system and better serviceability, which help to lower operating costs and maximize your technology investment. Your team will enjoy a consistent interface on the Voalte Nurse Call system’s staff station and patient room station consoles, even when they float between facilities. And we can right-size the system for your needs with standards-based integrations, flexible room designs and customizable system configurations.
