Our world is facing an unprecedented time as the SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) COVID-19 affects all of us. The one thing we have in common is the need to shelter in place. Being prepared for something of this magnitude was nearly impossible. However, care managers who use the disaster planning feature in our software would have had a supply list filled and stored at each client’s location. They would have the information to contact those who need to be informed.
Care managers have a unique responsibility to make sure that their clients are properly cared for. JewelCode believes that your care management software should make this easy to do. This is why we provide a full disaster planning module in our software.
CareComplete Disaster Planning Master Supply List
With this module you create a default supply list that you can provide to family members or purchase yourself to make sure your clients are prepared. Once you import the default list to a client record you can then add custom items to the list for each client. Additionally, we have a plan section where you select what will happen if they have to evacuate or if they are going to shelter in place. The plan includes out of state contacts and information related to their ability to plan for themselves.
The plan prints as a report. Our clients, who actively plan for disasters, print all the client’s disaster plans, current Face Sheets, and Medical Overviews to put in a Grab-and-Go Binder. They put the reports in plastic sleeves to help protect in the event of a water emergency. This binder contains all the information needed to support clients in an emergency.
Additionally, if you are using CareComplete in the cloud then JewelCode is able to provide assistance from a distance. Occassionally someone will need a piece of information from their software and will not have Internet service or power and if they are on an approved list to access data related to clients they can call JewelCode directly and ask for help getting information needed.
Don’t forget your own preparation. Use CareComplete to manage your own care information and print out planning reports. If you don’t take care of yourself first then it may be difficult to help others.
In this time of concern and warnings, we wish everyone safe wellbeing!
