Stanley Healthcare Wireless Emergency Call Solution Receives UL 1069 Certification

Stanley Healthcare, a provider of life-safety and security solutions for the senior-living and health-care industries, has announced that its Arial Wireless Emergency Call solution has received certification for the UL 1069 standard for hospital signaling and nurse-call equipment—the recognized standard for such systems in North America. Skilled nursing and other senior-living facilities in states that mandate UL-1069-compliant nurse-call systems will be able to utilize the solution's wireless infrastructure and features while meeting regulatory requirements.

"As the leader in safety and security solutions for senior living, we are very pleased to bring the proven wireless performance of the Arial solution to even more parts of the country," said Greg Borecki, Stanley's VP of senior living and fall management, in a prepared statement. "Arial is a comprehensive safety and security platform for senior care, encompassing nurse call, emergency call, wander management, fire alarm integration and much more. And now it offers wireless UL 1069 nurse call functionality, making it a single platform spanning the entire spectrum of senior care, from independent living to skilled nursing."

The Arial solution employs wireless and other technologies to help organizations improve resident care. Wireless infrastructure is quicker and cheaper to install than traditional wired systems, the company reports, with less disruption to residents and personnel. It also enables communities to quickly expand or modify coverage based on changing needs. Since the Arial solution supports multiple applications, senior-living communities can leverage their initial investment to meet other needs.

In addition to integrating a range of other systems, such as wander management and fire panels, the Arial solution offers an analytics dashboard for communities to benchmark and measure performance. It also comes with a mobile application allowing workers to view and manage events, as well as coordinate responses and document actions taken.
