Sonas Nursing Home Carrick-On-Suir

Sonas’s new nursing home in Carrick-on-Suir is a brand new, state of the art nursing home boasting 57 private and semi-private bedrooms and suites. We have had the privilege of working with Sonas on several of their nursing home developments and we were delighted to be commissioned to work with them again on this latest project.

Systems Installed

Touchsafe Pro Nurse Call System – Already installed in a number of Sonas Nursing Homes, Touchsafe Pro was the system of choice for the new facility in Carrick-On-Suir.

57 Nurse Call Points were installed in bedrooms and Ceiling Pull Cords were installed in 57 en-suite bathrooms, all communicating back a central Display located at the Main Nurses Station. 7 Alpha Numeric Displays were located at various strategic points throughout the building to communicate calls on the system to staff at various points. Touchsafe Pro Door Monitors were also incorporated at various exit points ensure that staff are notified if an unauthorised person opens a monitored door.

This was installed at the front door to safeguard residents at risk of wandering. When a monitored resident approaches the front door, an alert is activated locally at the door and on the Nurse Call System. This works in tandem with Door Monitors installed in 9 other locations throughout the building.

In Sonas we have used SVC Care Communications on numerous occasions across most of our Nursing Homes and have always found their quality of work to be of the highest standard. Their work is always undertaken in a timely and prompt manner and their pricing is extremely competitive. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any potential customers.

SignaCare Bunclody

SignaCare Bunclody is a luxury nursing home in a beautiful setting of Bunclody town centre. This is a state of the art facility, expertly designed with a focus on providing the space for independence, in the security of constant care.

The project involved the conversion of the old Millrace Hotel in Bunclody to luxury 59 bed Nursing Home. SignaCare were very involved in the system design from the beginning of the project and had a clear idea of what they needed from their Nurse Call System.

Systems Installed

SignaCare opted for Touchsafe Pro to enable seamless communication between staff and residents with the addition of Paging to ensure swifter response times to calls. All events are recorded on the system software enabling accurate data collection and critical management reporting.

The integration of Fall Prevention alarms with the Nurse Call System further enhances resident safety and allows staff to focus on providing care with the reassurance that they will be alerted if a resident is at risk of falling.
