Bedside Conrollers found in the Western General Hospital
Headphones
 

Most wards use the plastic tube style. The tube is pushed onto a plastic spigot in the bedside panel behind the bed.

The earpieces may be replaced separately for infection control so long as the tube is wiped clean.

The nurses will advice if this is acceptable under the present conditions.

Most wards have a stock of these and ward clerks know how to order.
