Our healthcare heroes are heroes every day and not just in the face of a global pandemic. In recent months, though, they’ve been called upon to do more with fewer resources and against what often feels like insurmountable odds. That is why push-to-talk two way radios for our healthcare heroes are more important than ever before.
These are some of the reasons PTT two-way radios for healthcare heroes are vital communicating tools today.
Offers Ease of Use with a Single Touch
Because push-to-talk two way radios are so easy to use, nurses, and other healthcare staff can communicate simply with a push of a button —even when they are busy attending to the needs of patients or their other responsibilities for the healthcare facility.
Improves Security in Healthcare Settings
With lockdowns continuing (and some starting over again) across the nation, domestic abuse and other volatile situations are becoming increasingly common in healthcare environments. These situations can be high emotion and often result in patients being assaulted as well as the medical staff providing care for these patients.
Equipping all members of your staff with push-to-talk two way radios means that everyone can quickly call for help or use the radios’s panic button when these and other acts of violence occur in hospitals and other medical settings.
Provides Discrete Methods of Communication in Healthcare Settings
There are different tools and accessories you can purchase for push-to-talk two way radios that allow you to discretely communicate with other members of your team while maintaining patient privacy and dignity in the process. This allows your team to communicate effectively while carrying out their duties with other patients. Of course, using push-to-talk two-way radios are beneficial for implementing social distancing measure among your team members.
Offers Long-Lasting Batteries and Options to Purchase Additional Batteries
With Peak PTT, you can purchase an additional rechargeable battery to accommodate shifts that require more than 8 to 10 hours of active talk time (most nursing shifts in a hospital, for instance). This gives additional talk time for hospital staff and helps to manage busier than average shifts more effectively.
