The BBCH Care staff have started using a new care system complete with care app, Person Centered Software (PCS).
This secure software allows the carers to spend more time with the Residents and less time on paperwork. The app gives staff all the information they need at their fingertips to provide safe, and personalised care.
PCS makes reporting very accurate and secure as every electronic record is automatically populated on the charts and reports that it relates to.
The app saves approximately an hour a day in paperwork because the carers can evidence care at the point of care. This means the carers can spend more time attending to the Residents’ needs.
The app applies flags if an action is overdue, which means nothing can be missed.
When new care staff come on shift they can easily see what happened on the previous shift. The communication is much better between staff, which is handy if a Resident’s needs change quickly.
PCS is very user friendly, with a photo for each resident’s profile and icons for the various actions. There are over 200 icons ranging from things like weight to activities to emotional support. At Bernhard Baron we have had a cloud based care system for 7 years but PCS has taken us to the next level, keeping our Homes at the forefront of personalised care.
