Whether the fire alarm goes off or there is an emergency in your assisted living community, you need to ensure that everyone who is on your campus is accounted for and represented. As a senior living director or operator, you need to ensure the safety of everyone who is living in and visiting your community. It can be extremely challenging to track everyone when the only method of capturing each person’s information is by signing in and out on a paper logbook.
As the operator of a senior living community, one highly burdensome task is going through the checklist of knowing the visitors, the family and friends, and the residents who signed out during an emergency or drill. Many operators will take the visitor sign-in log outside with them, go through the list of people and call out their names, to make sure they were accounted for during the evacuation. Many times, it’s challenging to read the names of the people who scribble their name into the paper log book.
If only there were a quick and efficient process for ensuring that every person was accounted for.
Accushield is changing the game for evacuation management in senior living. Accushield visitor management gives your senior living community the tools you need to know exactly who is in your building. Accushield replaces the paper sign-in book with a tablet-based sign-in system that manages the family and friends who are coming in to visit their loved ones as well as third-party healthcare providers. Not only does the Accushield visitor management system sign people in, but it also signs people out, including the residents.
When a person signs into the community, the Accushield system will print a name badge for that individual. During an emergency, the operator of the senior living community can use that same printer to print a list of everyone who has entered the community. So, instead of grabbing the paper log book, and hoping you can read the names of the people who entered the building, you’re able to get a real-time print out of the people in the building, visitors and residents alike.
Now, you can give this emergency evacuation list to a first responder, or you can go through the list and ensure that everyone is accounted for who was inside your community.
Did you forget to grab the emergency evacuation list during the chaos of the drill or emergency? No problem. As the operator of the senior living community, you can pull up a real-time report from your phone. By implementing the Accushield management system, your community is equipped to track all of its’ residents and visitors during an emergency.
