The importance of regulations and guidelines
In a national survey 86% of nurses reported that one or more care activities had been left undone due to a lack of time; This included comforting patients (66%), educating patients (52%), updating nursing care plans (47%) and pain management (18%) (Wakefield, 2013).
Each and every one of us experienced the importance of our health service during the Covid19 pandemic. It is imperative that healthcare workers receive clear guidelines in order to deliver best practice. To provide this, the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) set standards and inspect/review healthcare services to ensure that the highest level of care is carried out.
At SafeCare, we ensure that all of our software is kept up to date with the statutory regulations. This provides clarity and confidence to our Irish nursing homes. SafeCare digitalizing all paper documents, therefore decreasing documentation time and returning time to care.
If your nursing home is ready to make the transition from cumbersome paper documentation to seamless digital technology, please contact us at SafeCare and speak to one of our practice nurses directly.
