”From doing something which originally took us five to ten minutes: Two minutes, and it’s done. And rather than being with paperwork, you’re with the resident”

Reducing the amount of paper while increasing the level of care. That was the motivation for Quinton House when  choosing to implement Sekoia in their nursing homes.

 

Quinton House is a nursing home near Stratford upon Avon. The staff here work hard to ensure residents are cared for to a high standard. In order to support their staff the best way possible, they chose Sekoia as their partner in crime.

Better information sharing

By looking at the Sekoia screens carers are now able to access relevant information quicker and easier - and all information is located in the same place. All employees have their own log in, and Sekoia automatically time logs everything you do. This information is assessable to all staff giving the best prerequisites for providing even better care.

“You have the screens, you know where to access the paperwork you don’t have to go to different places to find them and everything is clear, everything is legible so information sharing is a lot better and there’s an audit trail -everything is time-stamped, so everything is clear on when it’s done so it gives the staff, and myself especially a more definite target on what to do throughout the day."

Spend time with the residents, not at the office

For Quinton House, the decision to implement Sekoia was based on a number of factors. Printing 30,000 sheets of paper each month is not cost-efficient and the large amount of paperwork was a real burden to the staff.

“From doing something which originally took us five to ten minutes: Two minutes, and it’s done. And rather than being with paperwork, you’re with the resident”,  Kate Pascual, Deputy Manager and nurse, explains.

This new and improved way of working has resulted in a significant decrease in the sheets of paper used on a monthly basis. Managing Director Bill Mehta elaborates:

"It’s not all about the cost-saving it’s about freeing up the staff, freeing up the nurses working day, freeing up the carers to spend more time with the residents and their families."
