Casey introduces overhead announcements for Code Blue

Casey Hospital is currently a ‘silent hospital’ with no overhead announcements, but that changes on Thursday 19 December with new overhead announcements for Code Blue Adult, Paediatric, Neonatal and External.

Previously all Emergency Procedure Notifications have been via the LanPage System.

This current paging system will remain in place, with the introduction of overhead announcements as the primary alert for a clinical emergency.

Bedside clinical staff will continue to make notifications by calling 999 and the contact centre will activate the overhead Code Blue notification.
