PROBLEM:

Single gang back boxes are crimping JR-14 wires.

 

TECH SUPPORT SUMMARY:

This defect will often not be discovered immediately as it will not snap the wire at the time of installation. The general wear and tear will cause pulling and friction on the solder joints on the ¼” jack wiring. If you have one fail, more than likely it will be present in larger quantities throughout the facility. It will also be impossible to detect them until the device finally loses its ability to restore. This awareness should be extended to anything that has exposed wiring/components, particularly that get mounted into a wall. For instance, Lobby Displays (LD-600) or wall mounted Caregiver Console’s (CC-800).

 

SOLUTION:

Be mindful of wiring when installing JR-14’s. This is not considered a product defect, but an installation error and therefore not covered under warranty.

When a resident at Columbia Healthcare nursing home triggers their nurse call system, they get help fast. Every time. How do we know? We compiled a list of every call in 2015 and analyzed the data. The average response time was 2:56. That’s from January to December, first shift through third, day in and day out. The whole year. Just under three minutes.

But we dug deeper, because an average doesn’t always tell the whole story. When you go over to Bill Gates’ house, the average net worth of people in the house is a deceptive $40 billion dollars. That’s why, in addition to averages, we need to know how much variation there is in the data. Did some people wait really long times and others get lightning fast service? Nope. The wait times were very consistent. The standard deviation (the average distance away from the average wait time) was only nine seconds.

That’s how we know that Columbia residents not only get rapid responses, but that they get them reliably.

We could tell you that RCare is partly responsible for these great numbers. But we don’t have to.
