Lesson Learned/Best Practice
Facility and Division Nurse Call standards differed from HCA corporate standards. There is no published document detailing division or specific facility standards.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Input from Division and Facility is required during design to determine which standard to follow. Design team should confirm with HCA Telecommunications Manager prior to issuing drawings. Consideration should be given to any future Nurse Call system replacement projects that may be done at the local level.
