IR311E Single Bed Patient Station

IR311E Single Bed Station

The IR311E Single Patient Station provides reliable two way, hands-free communication between patient and nurse, and provides for programmable privacy, paging, and patient priority from the master station.

Calling the nurse is accomplished by pressing the area indicated "NURSE" on the pillow speaker or by depressing the button on the call cord. Solid-state LED lamps on the faceplate indicate the call has been placed and when the intercom is in use.

If the pillow speaker or call cord is accidentally removed from its receptacle, the nurse master station video monitor register a non-cancelable call with "CORD OUT" indication. The call may be reset only by returning the call cord or pillow speaker to its receptacle. The pillow speaker also provides the patient with television controls (depending upon pillow speaker being used).
