Daily Notes

What are Daily Notes?

As your residents go about their day, it’s inevitable that a mixture of events will take place – some planned and some not. Whether you have scheduled a trip to the optician, a social coffee morning or an unexpected incident occurs, it’s crucial that a note is recorded so there is a log of useful information to relate back to. The Daily Note feature allows you to write text notes for a wide variety of health related, personal and leisurely activities.

How are Daily Notes used?

Daily Notes should be recorded whenever something notable happens or is due to happen. You can create simple text notes for specific residents which include as much or as little detail as you need, and attach files, images or map an emotional response to support your record. Daily Notes are quickly accessible, even on mobile devices and older entries can be searched using filter options.

You can create a Daily Note for any event. Here are some of the categories of events you can choose from:

  • Accidents and incidents
  • Behaviour
  • Care review
  • CareDocs Connect
  • Chart entry
  • COVID-19
  • Health professionals and other services
  • Leisure (birthdays, meetings, exercise, fun, etc.)
  • Meetings
  • Mental capacity
  • Monitoring records (test results, flu jab, etc.)
  • Nutrition, hydration and elimination
  • Personal care (hygiene, massage, bed time, etc.)
  • Spiritual events (prayer, church, etc.)

What benefits do Daily Notes provide?

Having a record of events not only allows you to keep track of what is happening for each resident, but it’s also an efficient way to practice person-centred care. For example, you can learn more about past behaviours and outcomes for specific situations, log how a resident is progressing each time they perform an activity, whether their medication is having the desired effect, or their reaction to a social event.

Who benefits from Daily Notes?

Both carers and home managers can review events and use the recorded information to understand their residents better. Having notes supports you in finding where improvements can be made to the service you provide, to help your residents feel as happy, fulfilled and comfortable as possible. This also helps you reach higher levels of regulatory compliance.

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.
