Staff at Mont Calm Residential care home in Kent have been celebrating reaching a very special milestone with their care recording.
The team at Mont Calm started using Log my Care for their care records last September and have now logged more than 500,000 actions. With Log my Care, staff can create notes on their mobile phones whilst working around the home, with the care manager able to keep an overview of all activity.
Louise Stocker, Registered Manager at Mont Calm, comments:
“Since we started using Log my Care last year it has been fantastic. We knew that lots of other care homes had started using online services for care recording, and we also wanted to improve the way we recorded notes, so we felt it was time for us to try it too. We came across Log my Care and haven’t looked back since.
“One aspect that has been really important for us is that we can record nutrition and hydration at mealtimes accurately. Using paper, it was much harder to get a precise record of the time food and drinks were given. But using Log my Care, we can make notes on the go which means we can monitor things much more closely. That way we can make sure our residents are meeting their daily targets for nutrition and hydration, which is a really important part of our audit process.
“From the staff point of view, they are really enjoying using the system and have found it really easy to get to grips with. Before they used to just see a mountain of paperwork that was tedious and tiring. Now they are much more aware of the purpose and the importance of recording, especially when they see the graphs which we can generate in seconds.
“It is really amazing to have reached this milestone and I am so proud of all of our team.”
Sam Hussain, Founder of Log my Care, comments:
“It’s fantastic news for the Mont Calm team to have reached this milestone. What’s remarkable is how quickly they adopted change and made the leap from paper to digital, as well as the staggering volume of care data they’re able to diligently record as a team. I’m extremely pleased in particular that our system is making it easier to manage their residents’ food and fluids requirements. We are delighted for all the staff at Mont Calm and send them all our congratulations.”
