Effective falls prevention programs rely on reliable use of a variety of interventions from education to signage to devices and equipment. Auditing compliance with these practices can help raise awareness, track common issues, and guide quality improvement. How do you keep an auditing program organized, easy for staff, and reported in a timely manner?
Set up audits that focus on the key components of your falls prevention program. Any staff can then securely collect data on any internet connected device including workstations, laptops, smartphones, and tablets. Recruit a champion in each unit to spot check and get helpful compliance data in a few minutes each week.
All falls prevention audit data is immediately charted so you can understand trends and identify common issues in need of improvement. Compare performance by department, shift, and more to provide targeted feedback to managers and teams. Email results automatically so everyone has the data they need. Export what you need as images, PDFs, or spreadsheet-friendly file formats.
With implementation of the Qualaris project, we were given the opportunity to be very proactive in implementing interventions – whether it is an alarm, mat or low bed.
