What are Body Maps?
Body Maps are used to accurately reference which body part is currently undergoing a treatment or experiencing a condition. This is done with the aid of an image of the human body.
How are Body Maps used?
Our Body Map feature lets you visually pinpoint where on the body a condition is affecting a resident. This helps you accurately track its physical progression so care can be issued accordingly. A wide selection of conditions can be recorded under each of the following categories:
- Bone injury
- Bruise / contusion
- Brun / scald
- Eye condition
- Infection / inflammation
- Injections / vaccinations
- Pressure injury / moisture lesion
- Skin condition
- Spasm / strain / sprain
- Trauma / wound
To save you time, we’ve programmed in an editable description for the majority of conditions. The information will appear automatically as part of your recording. All you need to do is customise the text where necessary to increase it’s accuracy to reflect your resident’s specific circumstances.
Extra information can be added to assist with the care process, such as noting a precise location and its measurements, what the plan of care will be and whether a reminder is necessary. Similar to Daily Note events, Body Map events can be published at the point of creation including adding a photo of the wound or condition.
What benefits do Body Maps provide?
You can paint a clearer picture of a condition, its progress and treatment, so other staff can have an accurate portrayal of the type of care needed. The benefits to the resident start with better care, which can lead to improved mood and confidence.
Who benefits from Body Maps?
With additional tools at hand to record precise information, staff can treat conditions more accurately. When you have an effective plan of care in place from the start of a treatment, less time and resources are spent optimising the treatment process. Care home managers who have healthier and happier residents will benefit from higher standards of compliance.
