Facility: Kingwood Medical
Location: 22999 East Texas Freeway
Humble, TX 77339
Equipment: Nurse Call
Issue: The nurse call is not ringing or responding or doing anything it is supposed to do. This has been an ongoing
issue (customer description).
On Saturday July 18, service technician Roberto Lopez found that patient room 8 was causing a short in the nurse call system via the Hill-Rom bed interface cable. This short was bringing down the nurse call power for the entire unit. This of course was the same patient bed that he had notified Facilities about one month ago. At that time, Facilities just placed tape over the connector end to indicate not to use the 37-pin bed interface connector. Well, on Saturday the tape had been removed and the bed was connected to the wall plate by the nursing staff and then caused the problem. So this time Facilities cut the cord so the bed would no longer be used.
