With the technical advancements of the modern day, it is now possible to upgrade old fire alarm and nurse call systems in less than a week.
Southern Care Maintenance (SCM) supplies and installs wireless solutions that remove the need for engineers to be on site installing cables for weeks on end.
Established in 1987, SCM is a specialist independent maintenance company offering supply, service and maintenance across two divisions – Fire Alarm and Nursing Equipment.
SCM has seen more customers opting for wireless systems due to the many benefits they offer and the ease and speed of installation.
A real benefit of wireless nurse call systems is the element of flexibility.
Units can be easily repositioned and multiple displays placed around the premises ensuring staff never miss a call, thereby improving efficiency.
SCM offers a system specifically designed for the care home sector
which is easy to use for both resident and user alike.
The room units have wipe-clean fronts and anti-microbial additives in all surfaces and buttons. This helps to maintain infection control standards.
If a fire risk assessor has recommended the fire alarm conform to the latest standard BS5839-pt1:2017, it is worth bearing in mind that, while it is only a recommendation, upgrading the system cuts down the search area and provides better protection in the unfortunate event of a fire.
With less disruption than wired systems, SCM provide a wireless solution that often allows the existing system to be left working
whilst installation takes place.
They will also offer references of recent installations and, if possible, can arrange for a representative of the manufacturer to attend site to deliver a presentation and answer any questions a care home might have so as to make an informed decision.
SCM also works closely with local charities and this year are proud to support Strode Park Foundation.
