Mobile Technology Improves Care Home Staff Retention by up to 40 per cent

Article published in Journal of mHealth and Digital Health Age

Handsale Care Home Group improves staff retention rates by 40% for carers and 33% for nurses since adopting the Mobile Care Monitoring system from Person Centred Software – with nursing staff gaining up to four hours a day to nurse, rather than do paperwork.

Rishi Sodha, Care Director of Handsale says, “We are delighted with our latest staff retention figures. The time saved compared to doing paper charts and records has meant staff can spend more time with residents – which is exactly why they got in the job in the first place.

“Our nurses are saving up to 4 hours a day and the care staff between 45 minutes to an hour. I hear many homes complain about lack of staff but if a nurse can save four hours, it’s like having another staff member for a third of a shift.

Rishi adds, “Our staff feel more secure in the knowledge that what they’re doing is being recorded accurately and in much more depth when compared to paper. I’m delighted to say that professional and regulatory partners have credited us with having some of the best and most person-centred care plans in the industry.”
