See How Long-Term Care Facilities Protect Residents with welloStation
Caring for seniors is a challenging yet rewarding job. Whether you’re part of a senior living facility, skilled nursing home or a long-term care facility, your residents have turned to you for support. No matter what the facility, the goal is always the same: to offer residents the best quality of life.
To do so comes with difficulties. In many cases, residents struggle with chronic illnesses and depend on the staff to help them stay as active and healthy as possible.
Protecting the health and wellness of resident is crucial, but with so many people coming in and out of your facility – from family members to vendors – it’s hard to prevent illness from spreading.
What if there was a way to prevent the spread of illness and protect your residents? There is. welloStation is a hands-free kiosk that scans guests for a fever before they enter your facility. If a guest has a fever, staff is notified via email so they can take action.
Here’s how welloStation prevents illness:
#1 Identify at-risk guests before they interact with residents
Guests simply stand in front of the welloStation and infrared technology scans the person for a fever. If no fever is detected, an "I'm wello" sticker is printed. If a fever is detected, the guest is alerted on screen.
#2 Staff is notified of potential risk
welloStation is a self-service kiosk so staff doesn't have to attend to it.
#3 Improve patient outcomes
For residents with weak immune systems or immune deficiencies, an illness like the flu can be detrimental to their health. That's why it's so important to fever-screen guests to prevent outbreaks from occurring and provide the best patient outcomes possible.
#4 Reduce risk to staff
By using welloStation, you aren't just protecting residents but staff too. If a contagious guest comes to visit and brings the flu into your facility, your residents and staff are at risk of contracting influenza. welloStation prevents a contagious outbreak that could keep your staff from doing their job effectively.
#5 Keep your reputation safe
welloStation helps you take a proactive approach to disease prevention and shows everyone – residents, guests, staff and vendors – that health and safety are paramount in your facility.
