Toronto General Hospital medical staff needed emergency assistance in the operating room with a double-lung by-pass patient. Emergencies are a daily occurrence in hospitals. And while excellent communications are critical to hospitals, to date, few voice solutions have been able to satisfy the demanding requirements of the health industry. To meet the requirements Toronto General Hospital chose Polycom. Toronto General Hospital deployed Polycom SpectraLink wireless telephones. SpectraLink 8000 wireless telephones exceed the privacy requirements of the healthcare industry and deliver the features of a sophisticated wired telephone, providing staff with added functionality directly from the handset and allowing staff to communicate throughout the hospital.
