The provider was trialling a new online remote care plan recording system on one of the floors. A staff member showed us how they could immediately record care needs using a handheld device and that this made it far quicker to record at the times of the day they had carried out care tasks. They could also record interactions and events for people. Although this system was in its early stages of use there was a good degree of confidence from both staff and the provider that this would make the recording of care more efficient. Care provided to people could also be clearly linked to the member of staff providing the care as each had their own log in to the handheld devices.
