DECT phones are an extension of the facility's PABX and as such can send and receive calls outside the facility, but also between handsets. Care providers can use the DECT phone to be mobile around the facility and still be in contact with staff and switchboard.
Nurse call messages can be sent to DECT phones as a way of advising of action required. These messages can be tailored to individual or group phones or site-wide. The handsets typically last for 8-12 hours on a single charge and then can be easily recharged in the cradle provided.
