Inspection Report

“People’s care records described the way in which they wished to be supported. These had been transcribed onto a new electronic format which staff accessed using mobile telephones issued by the provider. These had security log in codes and were stored in the home. Staff described how effective these were to use whereby they were able to update care records as they provided care and support. Another advantage was the responsiveness to changes in people’s care needs instantly updating care records. For example, a person had seen their GP and due to concerns about hydration they had asked staff to monitor their fluid intake. This had immediately been added to the electronic care plan and staff working around the home were immediately updated about this. If a person had not received the care and support as scheduled, the management team would be alerted and could follow this up to find out why. This meant people’s care was monitored closely to make sure they received their care and support when they needed it.”

“[Oakhaven] had recently introduced a new electronic care planning system which staff used interactively as they provided care. The impact of this was more time for staff to spend with people delivering care and support as well as staff having instant access to people’s care needs and any changes which had arisen. This also meant the response time for dealing with people’s changing needs was quicker and referrals for health care professionals could be made promptly.”
