The Alarm Pad can be added to the Bed Side Helper to alert the Carer and the Patient that they are leaning against the Helper, or if they knock it in the event of a seizure. Another use is for Patients to tell a Carer that they need assistance, if they are not able to operate a Nurse Call Pager.
The Alarm Pad is available with a Touch Alarm Box, to sound inside the Patient’s room, or a 10 metre Extension Cord can be used so that the Touch Alarm Box can be taken to another room. The Alarm Pad is also available with a Nurse Call Plug, to sound an alert through a facility’s Nurse Call Paging System.
If there are two Bed Side Helpers being used together on one side of the bed, or on opposite sides, then two Alarm Pads can be joined together using a Y-Connector so that they can plug into a single Touch Alarm Box or Nurse Call Socket. More Alarm Pads can be connected as required by using multiple Y-Connectors plugged in to each other.
ADDITIONAL ALARM PADS
For people using more than one Bed Side Helper, the Alarm Pad & Y-Connector option is available in the drop down menu for ordering an Alarm Pad bundled with a Y-Connector, to add to an Alarm Pad with Touch Alarm Box or Alarm Pad with Nurse Call Plug.
Note: Patients may still get out of bed without sounding the Alarm. If getting out of bed is a problem, we suggest using a Stand-Up Floor Alarm
