Call lights

The Sim Center I work at has plug-in space on the walls for call lights, but we don't have call lights to put next to our "patients". Does anyone have a way to obtain call lights? They don't have to work at all; it can be dummied. Thank you!!

Crazy but it works - we took jump ropes and cut them in half.  They look great.....

I found an image of a call light that was perfect, on the internet. I then printed some, cut them out, and laminated them. You can use phone cording to attach them to the bed. Much better than having the students "pretend" to give the pt a call light. Hope this helps.
