Wi-Fi Signal Lost
If ENSIGN cannot detect a Wi-Fi signal from a Bed Sensor Pad (BSP), then the Wi-Fi Signal Lost icon will appear in the notification area of the Individual Patient Card. An audio alarm is generated which can be easily muted by staff and the Individual Patient Card (IPC) is elevated to the Alarm Area of the Patient Status Page (PSP).
When a Wi-Fi connection is re-established the Wi-Fi Lost icon disappears without any further staff intervention and the IPC moves from the Alarm Area back to its normal location. This is a valuable time-saving feature if the Wi-Fi signal is momentarily disrupted by (for example) the movement of large equipment nearby.
