SF338 Staff Emergency Psychiatric Station
The SF338 Staff Emergency Psychiatric Station provides emergency call signaling when used in conjunction with the Alpha Communications® / TekTone IR316 psychiatric station. The station is for use in psychiatric wards or other high security hospital areas and is normally mounted within the ward or area where the patients are accommodated and within easy reach of the nursing staff.

An emergency call can only be placed following activation of the key switch on the IR316 station, usually located at the entrance to the psychiatric or high security area. A call is placed by depressing the call push button. The call-placed indicator flashes to provide for call assurance. Calls are registered on the NC300 series master station (and duty station if used) via audible and visual signals, as well as local indication on dome lights. Call cancellation is possible only at the IR316 psychiatric station.
