Application: Hospital headwall communication system (Patent ID: US20240038052A1)

The patient support apparatus described in the patent filed by Stryker Corp includes a first transceiver that wirelessly communicates with a stationary unit in a healthcare facility room, allowing for the transmission of audio signals from the patient support apparatus to the stationary unit. The controller pairs the first transceiver with the stationary unit by sending a pairing key via a second transceiver, generated using a hash function and various values such as serial number, MAC address, or time, ensuring secure communication. Additionally, the controller changes the pairing key with each pairing, deletes it after communication ends, and maintains heartbeat messages between the apparatus and stationary unit to issue alerts if communication is interrupted.

Furthermore, the patient support apparatus includes features such as a lift subsystem, siderails, and sensors detecting parameters like brake activation or patient weight, with the controller transmitting this data to the stationary unit. The apparatus can also receive caregiver audio signals from a nurse call system via the stationary unit and forward them to a speaker onboard. In cases where the stationary unit is not present, the controller can automatically switch to a wired transceiver to communicate with the nurse call system port. Additionally, a nurse call control allows patients to speak to nurses remotely, with the controller ensuring successful transmission of signals by utilizing both wireless and wired transceivers based on the presence of the stationary unit and response times.
