Benefits of Going Paperless at the Arbory
Residential Home

 

 

Case Study

The Arbory Residential Home in Andover has benefited from going paperless by saving time on documentation, seeing information in real-time, and spending more time with residents.

Going paperless

Going paperless, The Arbory Residential Home has used Mobile Care Monitoring since 2014 to replace paper records of daily notes, charts and reports. Staff have experienced numerous benefits across the organisation from using a paperless evidence of care and care planning system.

Using Mobile Care Monitoring has allowed staff at The Arbory to focus on spending time caring for their residents, while quickly and easily maintaining and monitoring care records.

Transition from paper to going paperless

The Arbory Residential Home in Andover, Hampshire is a 60 bed frail elderly care home specialising in dementia care.

Rather than writing care notes on paper at the end of the shift, staff record care on a handheld device. Toni Hanchant, a senior support worker, says: “I love it; it’s quicker and easier, and you can’t lose paperwork. You can click the icons and it writes the care note for you, and I like that when you enter a weight it automatically works out the BMI and MUST score for you.”

“From a manager’s point of view it’s a brilliant audit tool because it self-audits, and the live feed shows all care as it’s happening.”

Staff save time and spend more time with residents on their shift as evidence of care is quick and easy to record at it happens at the point of delivery. Toni also says that using the Mobile Care Monitoring makes doing her job easier as “I get alerts when a care plan needs to be reviewed.”

Going paperless for management staff

Janet Campbell, the deputy manager, uses the managerial part of Mobile Care Monitoring to see all care records and the charts and reports that are automatically filled in at the point of care. She agrees that it’s a fantastic step forward for The Arbory, “From a manager’s point of view it’s a brilliant audit tool because it self-audits, and the live feed shows all care as it’s happening.”
