Night checks in more detail

A simple way to prove your night care checks are being done

Nightly checks are an important way of proving that you provide a complete care service. They help protect both the management team and the carer from any spurious claims of neglect or abuse.

But how do you prove that overnight checks have taken place?

easyLog has an easy-to-use option, NFC Clock, that gives care homes and other service providers certainty that night time care is being delivered to the desired standard.

Low cost yet effective

NFC Clock is a simple app for smartphones or tablets which provides a reliable record that residential night checks and supported-living calls have been performed.

Each room or visit location is allocated a small NFC sticker or tag, which can be either attached to a suitable point in the room or secured in a folder or other documentation. Each tag contains a unique number and this is used by the software application to identify the location.

On entering the room, the carer simply touches the smartphone or tablet against the room identifier. The software automatically returns the carer, resident and time data to the easyLog software, providing an accurate and reliable record of the visit.

NFC Clock: night checks plus much more

Your easyLog software produces summary and detailed reports for each member of staff, an individual location or multiple monitoring points within an entire site. These reports show the time and duration of each visit, so you can prove required night time attendance or home care is being provided. Exception reporting identifies where visits have been overlooked to enable preventative action.

Further reports include total and average attendance times across any period by site and employee. An expected or budgeted period of carer attendance can be defined for any location and reports highlight comparisons against this.
