NC330SW—Station Database Editing and Programming Utility

Home » Products » Nurse Call Systems » Tek-CARE300III Nurse Call System » NC330SW—Station Database Editing and Programming Utility

The most requested feature of TekTone‘s Tek-CARE NC300 II nurse call system was the ability to save station programming data. So TekCARE NC300 II saves station programming—including architectural numbering, labels and zone assignments—as a separate database file.

The next feature requested was the ability to edit station programming data offline on a PC or laptop computer. Well once again, you asked and we listened!

With the NC330SW Database Editing Utility, you can open the station programming database file in a spreadsheet program (such as Microsoft® Excel) and edit each field. Edit the database file on the PC in your office or on a laptop at the job site, and then download the edited file to the nurse call system. This is a great time saver when setting up several buildings in a facility that have the same floor plans. After the database file has been created, all the buildings can be programmed with the same database file, or uniform changes can be made to existing systems.

The Tek-CARE NC300 II nurse call system must include at least one NC304 or NC304LCD master station, because only these masters use a station programming database.

After the nurse call system terminations and the last restore defaults or detect system stations have been completed, fill out the Port Programming Sheets in the IL715 installation manual. Then upload the file stations.db from the Tek-CARE NC300 II system to a PC or laptop, or start with the blank stations.db file provided with the utility.

NC330SW — Station Database Editing and Programming UtilityThe NC330SW utility is very straightforward and easy to use. The menu is shown at right.

Edit the database file with a spreadsheet program, and then download it to the NC304 or NC304LCD master station. Then at the master station, perform the Transmit Station Database function (if there is more then one master station), followed by the Detect System Stations function, and the system is ready to go.

Download the NC330SW Station Database and Editing Utility bundled together with its Installation Instructions, IL828. (Password required. Call US & Canada Sales to obtain one. You will also need a program that can unzip files with the .zip extension. NC330SW requires a personal computer running Microsoft Windows® 98 or XP.)

Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are health care facilities that offer patients the convenience of having surgeries and procedures performed safely outside the hospital setting. This trend in healthcare is a growing new market and TekTone has designed our systems to offer valuable nurse and emergency call capabilities to ASC patients.

ASC

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC), also known as Life Plan Communities, are designed for seniors who are currently living independently, but want the safety and security of being cared for as they age without having to relocate. As a resident’s health declines, he or she may transition from an independent living residence to assisted living, to an intermediate or skilled nursing facility—all on one campus. TekTone offers systems specialized in adapting to the changing needs of CCRCs, while keeping resident’s safety and security a top priority.

CCRC

A skilled nursing facility (nursing home, convalescent home, care home or rest home) provides a place of residence for those who require continuous nursing attention. Services available in skilled nursing facilities include assistance of nurses, nursing aides and assistants; physical, occupational and speech therapists; social workers, recreational assistants; and living space. In some instances, residents may reside in skilled nursing facilities to receive rehabilitation or other therapy following an illness or accident.

SKILLED NURSING

Assisted living / independent living facilities usually have a campus-wide call system so a resident can notify caregivers by initiating a call from a personal pendant or emergency button press/pull. The systems specified for these types of facilities are usually referred to as emergency call systems or personal emergency response systems. Call system requirements in assisted/independent living vary, but may be mandatory in some states. Assisted living facilities may prefer a combination of Tek-CARE wireless and wired technology, with pull-cord stations, call buttons and wireless pendants to ensure staff members are notified efficiently and quickly.

ASSISTED LIVING

Nurse call systems for hospitals, microhospitals and cancer centers must offer more than the ability for a patient to call for a nurse. These systems are now about total solutions to improving facility performance. Performance is identified as improving efficiency in terms of facility goals (rounding, reducing time to answer calls, tracking staff performance using metrics), improving staff satisfaction, and improving patient satisfaction.
