The Southport Private Hospital

Staff Duress

This is a Ramsay Health Mental Health hospital located in Southport, Queensland.


Electrotek was approached by Data & Voice Queensland who are the incumbent nurse call provider, to provide a cost-effective staff duress solution for this hospital. The challenge was that the hospital is a multi-level facility and that the staff duress activation location had be within 3 to 5 meters of the signal transmission within this multi storey development. An additional requirement was that the staff duress system had to be interfaced to the new Mitel IP PABX system so that alarms could be received by the staff DECT handsets.


Electrotek’s resulting solution was based on using the proven Inovonics Echostream technology interfaced to our INDUNA ECall monitoring and reporting server. The repeater density was also increased to ensure sufficient wireless signal coverage for the granular location as specified by the customer. Integration with the Mitel IP phone system was also successfully deployed.
