I couldn't live without...AccuNurse
What they got in the AccuNurse voice-activated information collection system is “so much more than that,” says Tambria Turco, Covenant's vice president of clinical care.
“We have the capacity, in real time, to have the CNAs make a clinical notation on a clinical condition that immediately goes to a licensed nurse. Built into the system is the requirement that some action has to be taken on it,” Turco explained.
Soon, nearly all of the chain's 54 sites, covering around 5,000 individuals, will be converted to AccuNurse.
“From a risk, liability and quality standpoint, it's very valuable. It synthesizes so much data for us,” Turco says.
