Telephony and other services directly at the patient's bedside

Communication, entertainment and information at the bedside are becoming increasingly important in hospitals. The Ergophone patient terminals and desk telephones take this trend into account and offer direct access to telephony (analog or VoIP), service- and nurse-calls as well as entertainment and information media. All costs for telephony and private television programmes are billed via the chip card.
