For Skilled Nursing Facilities

Sign In & Health Screening Made Simple

Since 2013, Team Accushield has laser-focused on replacing paper log books at entrances to skilled nursing facilities.  During that time, Accushield has worked to perfect every detail of the sign-in and health screening process for staff, families, friends, third-party caregivers, vendors, residents, and others who enter and exit skilled nursing facilities every day.

NHSN Reporting

The Accushield sign-in and health screening kiosk can help Skilled Nursing Facilities meet NHSN reporting requirements for Visitors, Staff, Physicians, Advanced Practice Nurses, PAs, and other Contracted Providers.

Here are some ways the Accushield kiosk can help automate the NHSN reporting requirements:

  • Easily capture vaccine status, type of vaccine, date of the first and second dose, and proof of vaccination for everybody that enters the facility
  • Automatically report on the number of weekly staff, visitors, and healthcare providers entering your facility
  • Pull NHSN based COVID-19 Vaccine reports to easily upload into the NHSN reporting website including Health Care Providers that are eligible for the booster

Vaccine Card & Test Verification

Skilled Nursing operators can now use the kiosk to verify proof of a Vaccine Card or Negative Test results.  The COVID Vaccine and Negative test verification approval process can be done in the following ways:

  • Staff, contract workers, and visitors can download the free Accushield Mobile App from the Apple and Google Play Store and upload a copy of their Vaccine Card or Negative Test result
  • The Accushield kiosk can be used to take a photo of a Vaccine Card or Negative Test result giving management the ability to approve or deny the document from their dashboard
  • Facility management can use the Accushield web-based dashboard to directly upload an approved Vaccine Card or Negative Test result document

Touchless sign in with Accushield Mobile

With health safety in mind, Accushield has prioritized the development of an all-in-one touchless sign-in and health screening solution. The system is designed to capture temperatures, ask CDC-recommended COVID-19 screening questions, and store sign-in and sign-out data for staff members, visitors, and third-party caregivers who enter skilled nursing facilities.

Stay informed of any possible contact issues and gain peace of mind knowing that your facility is going the extra mile to keep everyone safe.

Customize your screening questionnaire

Operators create a custom screening questionnaire that all staff members, visitors, and third-party caregivers need to complete before finalizing the sign-in process. Optionally, operators can also configure health screening questions as part of the sign-out process.

Require a visitor to accept a custom Informed Consent Form

As skilled nursing facilities begin the Phase III reopening process, many states are requiring an informed consent form from visitors acknowledging that they are aware of the risks of exposure to COVID-19 and that they will follow the requirements set by management.

Visitor Experience Surveys (Summer 2021)

Receive valuable visitor experience feedback immediately upon sign out. Simple visit surveys can help improve visitor satisfaction and identify visitor issues that need resolution in real-time by onsite staff. Improve online rankings for your facility by automatically requesting social reviews as visitors sign out.

Visitor and staff screening dashboard and reporting

The Accushield sign-in and health screening dashboard gives operators the ability to pull real-time health status reports for every staff member, visitor, third-party caregiver, and resident who enters the building. Included below are sample health screening reports that are available in real-time via the Accushield Dashboard.

  • Visitor & staff sign-in reports
  • Staff, visitor & resident temperature reports
  • Staff & visitor COVID-19 screening questionnaire reports
  • Resident sign-out temperature reports
  • Resident + visitor interaction reports

Instant Name Badge Printing (no ink needed)

Instantly print name badges for all visitors, contract workers, agency workers, vendors, and staff that properly sign in and complete the required health screening process.  Printing name badges adds a layer of security to Skilled Nursing Facilities by helping to identify every person that enters and exits the building.

Name Badge Vaccine Verification

The Accushield sign-in and health screening kiosk helps management identify the Vaccinated individuals in their facility. The checkmark in the upper left-hand corner of the disposable badge means the person has been fully vaccinated.

Record pulse oximetry measurements

As an additional safety measure, capture pulse oximetry measurements during the sign-in process to help identify staff and visitors with low blood oxygen levels and potential respiratory problems or compromised lungs.

Key Features

Sign In and Sign Out

Log sign-in and sign-out data for every visitor, staff member, third-party caregiver, vendor and resident to analyze who is in the facility during specific time frames.

Touchless Sign In with Accushield Mobile

With health safety in mind, the Accushield Mobile app provides a fully touchless sign-in and health screening experience, so germs are not distributed by touching the kiosk screen.

Forehead-Scanning Thermometer

Instantly forehead-scan every person that enters your facility as a part of the sign in process and halt the process if temperatures are above your safety parameters.

Custom COVID-19 Screening

Require customizable health screening questions for everyone that enters and/or exits the facility to help manage individuals that show symptoms of COVID-19 or other health concerns.

Health-Verified Name Badge Printing

Make security and safety easier and provide peace-of-mind to residents and staff by providing a visible name badge to confirm sign-in and health screening compliance.

Visitor Experience Surveys

Satisfaction surveys provide real-time visitor experience feedback as guests sign out; improve online rankings of your facility by automatically requesting social reviews.

Alerts and Notifications

Reporting & Analytics

Whether your focus is care coordination, health screening, contact tracing, or another important goal, all the data you need is immediately available in a user-friendly format.

Facility Tour Tracker

Capture, track and record every facility tour following a prospective resident’s sign in; notify designated staff automatically when a walk-in tour visits the facility.

Facility Watchlist

Instantly stop the sign-in process and notify facility management and the front desk concierge if a visitor that is not allowed onsite attempts to sign in.

Evacuation Management

In case of an emergency, time is critical. Quickly print an evac report directly from the badge printer, or access an online ledger of all the visitors within the community and the residents who are away.

Love Meter

Track the least visited residents in your facility, allowing you to better manage and love those who may feel abandoned and isolated due to a lack of outside visitation.

COVID-19 Vaccination Status

Request, track and report on the COVID-19 vaccination status of every individual who enters your facility. Individuals can be prompted to respond if they are fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated, not vaccinated, or that they choose not to disclose.

Question Branching

Create an optional secondary question to follow a yes or no answer to the primary Health Screening questions on your kiosk. The sign-in process can also be terminated on the secondary question based on either a yes or no answer that you set.

Group SMS Messaging

In the event of an emergency or identified contact tracing incident, effective communication is vital. Send group text messages with specific instructions or information to employees that have signed in during a certain time period.

Helping stop the spread of COVID-19 in facilities

The sign-in kiosk registers all visitors, staff, vendors, and third-party caregivers entering and leaving the facility. The system tracks who a visitor is seeing within the facility, allowing at-risk individuals to be identified after being visited by someone with COVID-19.

  • Helps keep out individuals who show symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Helps mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by tracking visitor and resident visit interaction.
  • Helps with mass visitor, staff, third-party caregiver, and vendor communication should there be a COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Helps with COVID-19 messaging (example: the person must agree to wash hands and wear a mask before completing the sign-in process and entering the facility).
