"One of the reasons we're excited about voice-assisted care is because we have very large buildings, and searching for staff and overhead paging have been challenges that we can now completely eliminate with the Silent Paging feature of AccuNurse," said Jodi Funderbunk, director of information technology at Central Control.

We're also looking forward to reduced training time for new members of our care team and contracted staff. AccuNurse is extremely user friendly, especially the reports.
