Voceras for patient families--Disable call button-Recieve calls only
We give out about 75 badges a day to patient families to keep them updated throughout the day on a family members procedure. Names are programmed in daily by tiered administrators (nurses). The nurse explains the use , logs in the badge, adds the family member to a locked down Family group(most permission revoked), and tests the badge with the user. The family badges have been a huge hit with the families. A problem is the families may accidently or on purpose push the call button and get stuck talking or arguing with the genie.
I'd like to see a permission added to disable the call button. In our case, when the family member was verbally added to the "Family Group'' the call button would be disabled. If there was another permission or setting that would automatically logout the user on powerdown, the call button would become active again when the battery was removed or a very short time period elapsed.

The "direct call" feature was added in VS 5.3.4 and Platform 6.2.1 and allows restricting certain users from using the genie.
