Fluid and Nutrition Monitoring

Check Nourishment with Care Vision

Care Vision’s fluid and nutrition monitoring system is set up to track fluid intake and to identify the nutritional content of meals. It can help carers make sure that residents are receiving the proper nourishment. By using our software, you can access a comprehensive summary of meals, track trends in residents’ appetites and food choices and receive alerts of any changes or notifications.


Attendance tracking software

In pre-digital days, care home staff routinely used manual clock-in systems and signing in sheets to record their comings and goings. Not only was this cumbersome and time consuming, it was also open to abuse and misunderstandings. Switching to a digital clocking in system removes the ambiguity and produces an accurate, central record for attendance management, payroll and security functions. Using attendance tracking software also helps people to analyse patterns in staff movements and timings of shifts. This enables more effective planning to be put in place and helps management to spot any problems or concerns before they become more serious.

Facial recognition software for clocking in

Our attendance tracking and clocking-in software uses the latest in facial recognition software to record staff movement at the start and end of shifts. This limits physical contact with the clocking-in device to aid hygiene management and eliminate cross infection. It also does away with the need for staff to keep electronic fobs on them at all times that can be lost or stolen. The tracking software also links directly to HR functionality that monitors attendance, breaktimes, sickness and lateness. The facial recognition software for staff clocking in works separately to visitor entry procedures, making the process quick and easy.

Real-Time Monitoring

Our app displays real-time information and updates around residents’ hydration levels and nutritional intake. This vital information can then be shared at staff handovers to provide all team members with rapid access to the details they need to support residents. Our digital system also tells carers the likes and dislikes of each resident and tracks key dietary requirements and allergies to support safety and comfort during mealtimes.

Keep Carers Updated

Our software is completely customised for each resident. Whether there is a fluid target that needs to be fulfilled or a specific nutritional need, everything can be tailored for each individual. Carers can keep clear records of nutritional and fluid requirements, as well as food and liquids that have been provided and consumed during the past 24 hours.

FAQ’s Section

01How should nutritional and fluid intake be monitored?
A fluid balance chart should be used to track input and output if you are worried about a resident’s fluid intake. This will not only show how much fluid is consumed, but it will also allow you to keep checking on urinary and other healthcare issues.
02Why is it important to track nutrition?
It can assist you in recalling meals from that day and their nutritional content. You can identify where you can improve nutritional balance if you are aiming to meet a target, as well as keep track of the number of calories consumed.
03What factors may affect nutritional intake?

Some of the factors that can influence nutritional needs include:

  • Genetics and gender
  • Age
  • Activity levels and energy consumption
  • Environmental temperature and time of year
  • Health status
  • Availability of ingredients.
04Is food tracking necessary?
It would be far harder to identify the cause of any concerning health symptoms if you didn’t keep track of food consumption and macronutrients.
05What should be included in a nutritional needs assessment?
It is important to estimate daily intake of calories, the balance you are achieving between food groups and the general nutritional quality of diet as part of a nutritional needs assessment.
