Alerta Wireless Nurse Call Button
For patients with low mobility or those suffering from dementia, it's crucial that carers are able to quickly respond in the event of any panic or emergency. The Alerta Wireless Nurse Call Button connects wirelessly to your connected receiver or nurse call system, allowing patients to alert carers of their distress instantly in the event of a fall, injury or any other emergency.

How Does the Alerta Button Work?
The Alerta Nurse Call Panic Button provides patients with a way to instantly alert carers of their distress. The moment the patient presses the button, the wireless transmitter will instantly send a signal to the Wall Point Receiver, which will then sound a stand-alone alarm or signal an alert through the connected nurse call system. This allows the caregiver to quickly ascertain the patient's safety in a prompt fashion, limiting injuries from falls or dangerous situations.
Who Is the Alerta Panic Button For?
The Alerta Nurse Call Button is ideal for any environment where a carer may be worried about a patient's safety due to falls, confusion or dementia. It is perfect for use in residential care settings, as well as hospitals and care homes that may be caring for patients with low levels of mobility or general vulnerability.
Where Should the Nurse Call Button Be Used?
This panic button can be used in a number of ways, and is most effective when placed in a fixed location at the patient's bedside, or when worn around the neck of the patient with the included lanyard. When placed by the patient's bedside, the call button is most effective when placed in the included wall-mountable holder, allowing it to stay in a fixed location to ensure the patient always knows where it is.

How Does the Button Send An Alarm?
Once paired with your Alerta Wall Point Receiver (available via drop-down menu above), this call button will send a signal any time it is pressed. An alarm will sound directly on the receiver if used as a standalone system, or an alarm will be sent through a nurse call system if your receiver is connected to one.
Where Is a Standalone Alarm System Necessary?
While any care home or hospital with a nurse call system will most likely choose to connect their call button into the system, the standalone option is ideal for residential care settings or smaller care homes. With a stand-alone Alerta Wall Point Receiver, a signal will be sent and an alarm will sound directly on the receiver itself, allowing for simple and quick reaction from care staff. The receiver can be used with battery operation (2 x 1.5V AA batteries), allowing carers to keep it on hand should any emergency arise.
Will the Wall Point Receiver Always Sound An Alarm?
For situations where your Alerta Nurse Call Button is connected to a nurse call system, it may not be necessary for the Wall Point Receiver to sound an alarm as well. In these cases, the Wall Point Receiver can be silenced, sending an alert to the nurse call system while remaining silent in the patient's room. This is ideal in situations where an alarm may startle a patient, or if multiple patients are in the same room.
Simple Pairing System
To make use as simple as possible, all parts of the Alerta wireless system are designed with a simple pairing system that allows the caregiver quick and easy set up in any hospital or care home scenario. The Wall Point Receiver is available with a choice of a variety of plugs to make it compatible with most nurse call systems, allowing the Alerta system to be up and running immediately.
How Many Wireless Products Can Be Used at Once?
When connecting your wireless Alerta products into a nurse call system, each Wall Point Receiver is able to receive signals from up to five Alertamats or Alerta alarm devices. One receiver will not interfere with another, allowing for the potential for multiple receivers to be used in a single care environment for a truly comprehensive falls and wandering prevention program. Alerta devices compatible with the Wall Point Receiver include:
- Provides immediate notification of patient distress when button is pressed
- Connects wirelessly to the Alerta Wall Point Wireless Receiver
- Supplied with a lanyard and wall-mountable holder
- Ideal for home care, nursing homes and hospital environments
- Wireless transmitter require 2 x AAA batteries for operation (not included)
- Can be used as a standalone system with Wall Point Receiver or as part of nurse call system
