Electrical and mechanical services provider, Quartz Electrical and Mechanical Services, installed a wireless Aid Call Touchsafe Pro nurse call system at Ramsay Health Care’s new Tees Valley Hospital, which opened this February.
Aid Call was commissioned by Tolent Construction as part of its design and build of the new hospital. The project required Quartz to design, install, and test all M&E services to ensure HTM compliance, and meet the client’s specific requirements.
Gavin Kendall, Electrical Operations director for Quartz, said: “Aid Call’s wireless offer, and the system’s adaptability were, in my opinion, the best solution.” The Touchsafe Pro system does not rely on cables or stationary wiring points, making it ‘infinitely expandable’, and allowing ‘complete flexibility and mobility’.
Aid Call and Quartz Mechanical and Electrical Services began working together on the installation in July 2017. Gavin Kendall explained: “Aid Call was quick to assist throughout. We completed first and second fix, and testing and commissioning works, together, all within the required timescales to allow us to meet the project completion date.”
Aid Call also assisted later, when the client requested an emergency paging system for the wards, and a remote call point for attachment to a mobile MRI unit which visits the hospital weekly.
