Care instructions only make sense if they are easily available in the context they are needed. No one wants to read an instruction on how to set breakfast when they are trying to do mobility exercises. On the other hand, the correct instructions in the correct context improve residents’ safety. And conditions for the staff. Since instructions showing exactly how to carry out complicated care activities.
Consistently registering assessments is pretty rare. Mostly because it’s such a hassle to do them. Not when they are linked directly with the task you are doing. The assessment can be done with a few clicks with your finger. And it’s even possible to make assessments mandatory before you can mark a care activity as complete. That way, you can use the feature to collect data with much greater accuracy than before.
When you link the correct instructions and assessments to a particular care activity, things really start to come together. All centred around the people you support. An example could be a resident’s mobility exercises. Typically, the instruction is made by a physio. It would make sense to then register how the resident is getting on with the exercises. How are they doing them? Are they doing all the exercises or get stuck at some point? Here, the link between care activities and assessments is particularly useful.
