The Accushield visitor management system helps set third-party caregiver credentialing standards in senior living communities and puts self-employed caregivers and Agency providers on an even playing field.
We can all agree, the residents who live in senior living communities are some of the most vulnerable individuals on the planet.
Recently in the news:
“Elderly residents at three senior living centers targeted by criminals…”
“Resident in a Senior Living community finds wedding ring at a pawn shop…”
“Serial killer targets senior living…”
We live in a different world, and safety and security in senior living communities has never been more critical.
Many senior living owners and operators are becoming increasingly concerned with the safety risk and liability associated with un-screened/un-credentialed third-party health care providers and vendors (i.e., Private-sitters, Home Health, Hospice, etc.) that stream in and out of communities and work hands-on with residents and staff
To address this industry-wide concern, Accushield has created a touchscreen, badge-printing Tablet to automate the sign-in process and confirm receipt of required credentials (i.e., criminal background check, liability insurance, immunizations, etc.) from third-party health care providers and other vendors working in senior living communities.
By removing the paper sign-in clipboard from the front of the community and replacing it with the innovative Accushield touchscreen kiosk, we believe this can add a layer of protection to residents and staff while minimizing risk and potential litigation to ownership.
Senior living communities across the country are contracting with Accushield to manage their visitor sign-in compliance and the credentialing of vendors who work in their communities. Owners have the right to set and enforce standards of access for visitors, including the vendors and caregivers who seek to conduct business in their community. Accushield provides a tool to support communities in their efforts to provide the highest level of care and safety for their residents.
