Learning about their

Background

Albert House Nursing Home is a luxurious, state-of-the-art care facility for the elderly.  The 38-bed nursing home is a family run business that employs over 50 staff and has proudly maintained good rating from the CQC.

Understanding the

Challenges

The information and evidence the regulator collects at an inspection is comprehensive.  Providing robust evidence to the regulator on what has or has not happened is essential.  As far as the inspector is concerned, if something is not recorded then it did not happen and suggests the provider is failing in some way.  We needed to ensure we were properly recording and evidencing all aspects of care; failing to do so would have a detrimental impact on our inspection outcome.

The Solution

Switching to an electronic care management system involves a shift in working practice, we were concerned about the change, but we didn’t need to be.  Care Control was easier to implement than we had expected!  We identified two “Care Control Champions” within the home who were enthusiastic about Care Control and embraced the change.  They were responsible for configuring the system, entering data and supporting the roll out of Care Control across the home.  We set a ‘go live’ date and went cold turkey on paperwork.

The Benefits

    • Care Control gives us a clear audit trail. All aspects of care are recorded electronically with automatic time-stamps and user name; we can trace back to identify both mistakes and successes.
    • Our data is backed up securely on the cloud, we don’t have to worry about records getting lost.
    • At the touch of a button we can access documentation very quickly and easily.
    • We no longer have to decipher bad handwriting. Carers can speedily enter notes electronically by typing or using voice to text and selecting customised drop-down options to build their care notes.
    • Care Control reminds carers what they need to do and if a task isn’t completed the team are alerted.
    • The instant reports and overviews help us to identify changes that need to be made. We can be confident that we are delivering effective care that is based on the evidence presented in Care Control.
    • Family access means it’s much easier for family members to monitor their loved one.
