As I take a step back and look at all we have accomplished in 2017 – one word comes to mind. [GRATEFULNESS] I continue to be floored by the overwhelming support and encouragement coming from our customers. Buckle up, 2018 is going to be an awesome year!
Who we are:
Accushield, LLC is an Atlanta, Georgia corporation established in 2013.
Accushield is a senior living visitor management company designed to add a layer of protection to residents, staff, vendors and property owners by ensuring that vendors and service providers comply with specific risk management procedures and standards of conduct. Accushield is retained by Independent Living, Assisted Living, Continuing Care Retirement Communities and Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation facilities with the intent of screening and credentialing third-party suppliers, vendors, and contractors in a centralized database. In a highly regulated market vulnerable to safety issues, Accushield utilizes existing best practices and standards of compliance developed for the facility vendor credentialing marketplace combined with accessible technology that assists the vendor, the vendor management and the facility in that process. AccuShield enables senior living facilities to create a safer, less stressful living and working environment for residents, staff and vendors by certifying that key vendor risk management credentials are visible and in compliance with facility protocols.
In addition, Accushield helps minimize the risk of damaging legal and financial issues for the owners of the facilities while also establishing a reputation of integrity and excellence in care.Excessive negative publicity and litigation driven by actual – or perceived – risk management lapses is an increasing concern for directors and owners in the senior living marketplace. In the unfortunate event of formal litigation as a result of failed risk management procedures, Accushield’s position is simply that the successful defense of the facility is improved by that facility’s accurate demonstration of steps taken proactively to address sources of risk, which are, in this case, its vendors.
