Pre-Admission Assessment

Pre-Admission Assessment for Care Facilities

Care Vision’s pre-admission assessment tool provides a comprehensive evaluation assessment before admitting a resident to a care home. Our pre-admission assessment feature can help identify the individual's needs and ensures that the care facility has the required resources to meet them. It also aims to encourage an improvement in resident satisfaction and care quality standards by matching the incoming resident’s needs with what the care home can provide.

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.

No More Manual Efforts

While the incoming resident, or their loved one is providing the required details during the admissions process, you can automatically record everything on the Care Vision system. This helps prevent having to ask the same question again and again and ensures that nothing is missed. In addition, the details form a key part of the resident’s care plan and can be updated as they settle in.

Necessary Alerts

When a care manager submits a new resident’s details onto the Care Vision system, any necessary alerts (e.g. medical, diet…) will trigger automatically. This includes details such as previous injuries, mobility, medical condition, nutrition and hydration and personal care. Alerts can also be linked to a person’s preferred levels of activity, hobbies, religion and social interaction.

FAQ’s Section

01What is an assessment in a care home?
A care or nursing home assessment is a process whereby details about a person’s physical and mental condition are noted. Details can include current medication schedule, medical history, support networks and capacity for performing daily tasks like bathing, dressing, eating, and cleaning. This information is then used to ascertain what level and type of support is required during the person’s time residing in the care home.
02How does Care Vision help care homes with their pre-admission assessments?
When a care manager takes down all the necessary information about an incoming resident using Care Vision, the data is automatically uploaded to the system, creating a Support Care Plan for each person for the very start. This helps reduce the time and effort needed to create this manually and helps care managers make informed care plans for their residents.
03When do you need a pre-admission assessment?
If you are suffering from a severe physical or medical condition or are finding it harder to look after yourself in the community, you may need to consider moving to a care facility. Care homes can help support you in your daily living routines and maintain your medication routine. In order to prepare the best care management plan for your individual needs, a care home will normally ask you to take a pre-admission assessment before they offer you a place.
