Development news - facilities management
We are pleased to announce that development of the Facilities Management module (formerly known as Home Maintenance) is completed, and is currently undergoing rigorous testing.
A release date is still to be confirmed. This is because we require that all of our support staff are available at our office during release to ensure that any support calls are answered promptly. Unfortunately, this is not possible at the present time, given the current Covid workplace restrictions.
This release is not just about the highly anticipated Facilities Management module, we have also been busy enhancing the current CMS system to ensure that information regarding your residents and their care is seamlessly provided.
Accident & Incident wizard
As part of the next CMS software release, there is an update to our Accident & Incident wizard, including a new layout and some additional features.
Set access rights
The new release will allow you to specify which employees can view the record. Access rights can be set either at the individual employee level or at a user profile level. This feature will be of particular benefit for highly sensitive incidents or those recorded against an employee.
Set access rights at either an individual employee level or at a user profile level.
When you select Did an Injury occur?, the new wizard will force you to enter details about the injury. Body map entries can only be recorded if this is checked and the incident is recorded against a resident.
Once an incident has been followed up, the user can either set a new review date or select Confirm no further actions are required.
Accident or incident follow up
When creating an accident or incident record, you previously had the option to enter multiple review dates. This feature has been simplified to allow only one review date. Once an accident or incident review has been followed up (see point below), the user can either set a new review date or select Confirm no further actions are required.
The review process has also been improved. You will be notified from both the shift handover and diary, as before, but when reviewing the incident, the complete incident will be opened rather than a brief summary. Once reviewed, you can choose to enter an additional follow up date or mark the record as complete.
