Hart Care Nursing Home, Yelverton

"Simply the best care home software system on the market!”

54 Beds
Yelverton

Background

A registered 54 bed home in Yelverton, Devon. Hart have been using Care Control since April 2014. They have opted to have 3 Care Control Windows installations (one dedicated for staff) with a further 6 tablet units dotted around the home.

Daily Challenges

The move from a paper based system to computer records has been a significant change for the home, but owner Richard Hart is really positive about the outcome, “I made the decision in February to move to a computerised system to help manage and record the care we were providing. I reviewed many systems on the market and Care Control stood out as a system that was so easy to use, but still provided the level of detail required by CQC. With the use of computer tablets throughout our home, and the way Care Control ensures that care tasks are never forgotten, I am delighted at how the system is working for Hart Care.”

How Did Care Control Help?

Staff at the home are also pleased with how Care Control is working. Jan Smith, deputy manager and nurse with 25 years experience said, “Care Control is very intuitive and easy to use. I have used other care computer systems before and often found them difficult to work with. Recording information on Care Control is quick and easy, and the quality of the care plan produced is of a very high standard indeed.”
