Choose Us to be Your Nurse Call Partner

Johnson Controls specialises in providing clinical-grade Real Time Location Systems for hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Solutions include Asset Tagging, Staff and Patient Location, Temperature Monitoring, Bed Management and Contract Tracing Reports.

Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) solutions are location technologies used in a multitude of sectors from healthcare to retail and manufacturing. Our solutions incorporate multiple technologies; from active radio frequency identification (RFID), infrared, low frequency RF and even Bluetooth low energy (BLE).

Real-time location services can be easily integrated into a Johnson Controls Nurse Call system.

Whatever your needs are, you can be sure that we have a solution to suit your needs.


How does it work?

Badges and asset tags with unique IDs constantly report their location to ceiling-mounted infrared/radio frequency receivers.

We establish a clinical-grade standard by combining safe, invisible infrared (IR) light and the communication capabilities of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). This provides the most precise locating technology available to healthcare.

Staff, patients, visitors, and assets can all then be located and tracked in real time to deliver operational workflow efficiencies.

Our RTLS Solutions Offer a Wealth of Time Saving and Productivity Features

The key to getting any capital investment approved is so often Return On Investment (ROI). We will help justify these goals with our technology.

A common request is Nurse Call Automation. As nurses enter the room, their ‘presence’ is automatically registered and time-stamped. The active ‘presence’ condition will automatically reset as they leave the room. This also captures nurse rounding data.

By combining systems, there’s less wiring and disruption.

Entry-level location solutions provide automatic nurse presence. For example, when a nurse enters a patient’s room, the appropriate ‘nurse present’ light illuminates and the patient call light turns off. On exiting, the overdoor light will change to indicate that the carer is no longer present. There is no need to remember to manually press a button to reset the 'nurse present' status and the system will keep a log of all interactions between patients and staff.

The Automatic Prescence location feature offered by the RTLS can be employed to quickly and easily locate fellow colleagues on one of our ‘glance and go’ electronic whiteboards. This is an increasingly sought after feature.

RTLS can be used for effective asset tagging applications. An average hospital loses many thousands of pounds every day due to time being wasted by members of staff searching for mobile medical equipment. Often there can also be a tendency for over-procurement of assets and equipment to ensure their availability. Our asset tracking systems enable staff to more efficiently manage a healthcare facility's fixed assets throughout the hospital.
