Learning their

Background

St. Ninians is a care home located in Scotland and owned by BDM Care Ltd.  When we bought the home 5 years ago, the home was failing and faced closure.  Under the management of BDM Care, we have expanded and transformed St Ninians Care Home, recently achieving the highest possible quality grading from the Care Inspectorate.

Understanding the

Challenges

BDM Care must meet Health and Social Care Standards as set by the Scottish Government and regulated through the Care Inspectorate by ensuring we are providing person centred Care which incorporates The Human Rights Framework.

In paper format care information may be, at best, disjointed, untidy and sometimes illegible.  We wanted an electronic care management system that incorporated everything that we were documenting on paper and could link this information together to make it meaningful.  We wanted something interactive to involve residents and their families and to improve communication and participation.  We were looking to work smarter through the implementation of electronic forms and care reviews and have a quick and efficient way to reference and monitor the care being provided, rather than trawling through paper files.

Helping to find

The Solution

We started off with a 30-day trial. The system was initially overwhelming, but the Care Control support team were fantastic and the ‘How to’ videos really helped our workforce to learn the system.

The Benefits

    • All our information is now in one place and is instantly accessible. We no longer waste time sorting through paperwork to retrieve information.   This means that when social workers visit we can quickly access care notes and show them on the screen.
    • Care Control has made our manager’s life much easier. The system shows who has/hasn’t completed allocated care tasks.
    • The automated alerts help us to ensure that nothing gets missed, they help us to improve responsiveness.
    • The ‘Red Flag’ feature in the handover notes and the messaging tool means that our staff are always aware of changing needs and can respond accordingly; our residents always receive the personalised care that they need.
    • The monitoring analysis compiles historical data and, unlike paperwork, presents this data in useful graphs. We can easily identify abnormal changes and take action.
    • The reporting features means we can now analyse resident and staff information to help us improve quality and efficiency.
    • Assessment scores are automatically calculated from the data we input, saving us time calculating and providing accurate figures.
    • Family members have access to Care Control enabling transparency. They are always informed and up-to-date with their loved one’s care and activities.
    • We feel that Care Control gives us everything we could possibly need from an electronic care system.
