Policies & Procedures

What are Policies & Procedures?

Policies & Procedures is a dedicated section within CareDocs for storing go-to documents that lay out specific information to guide how you work in your setting. 

CareDocs Features Policies and Procedures

How are Policies & Procedures used?

Our care sector experts have sourced and compiled a large database of policies and procedures for you to import, view and customise, directly through CareDocs. They are grouped into three categories, which when selected, will give you access to dozens of fully editable and printable documents. Here’s a sample of what you can expect:

Care of individuals:

  • Activities, recreation and social interaction
  • Consent
  • Oral health care
  • Safeguarding
  • Relationships and sexuality

Management of the environment:

  • COVID-19
  • Health and safety
  • Infection control
  • Personal protection equipment
  • Security
  • Waste disposal

Service management:

  • Complaints
  • Data protection & GDPR
  • Gifts
  • Staff dress code
  • Training and development

New documents are added regularly through software updates and you can create new documents yourself. Just in case you’re in a hurry, you can quickly locate relevant documents using a keyword search and users with managerial access can monitor who has read what.

What benefits do Policies & Procedures provide?

Having a library of ready-made and fully editable digital policy and procedures can save hours of work manually creating your own from scratch. Our Text Swaps feature allows you to quickly find and replace certain words or phrases throughout an entire document to match your preferred terminology.

Locating them is also effortless for any CareDocs user. All staff are freely available to view them on-screen or print them to read later and can mark when they have read a document to record their progress. This is one way our system becomes a central hub for your management needs as well as care recording needs.

Who benefits from Policies & Procedures?

The users who will benefit from the everyday use of Policies & Procedure are carers and new starters. This is a space to house everything they need to know about how a variety of subjects and situations should be approached and handled within your business. 

However, with the ease of access to your documents, everyone can benefit in one way or another, whether it’s through improved efficiency or management having renewed confidence in knowing staff have the resources at hand to read and learn about your business.

The outstanding support from the CareDocs team is fantastic
There has been a genuine willingness to use CareDocs as the care staff could really see the benefit of using it. I was immediately struck by the intuitive way in which it had been built, & the breadth of the functionality it supported. The outstanding support from the CareDocs team is fantastic.
