  • Influenza

  • and more!

“Daily health screening remains a critical component of our infection prevention and control program. Today, our residents are exposed to more than we’ve ever had to worry about in the past, and it’s not just about COVID-19 anymore. With heightened media scrutiny and more government oversight, it’s critical we operators do everything we can to protect the most vulnerable population and our workforces.”
Misty Reid, AGACNP-BC, MSN
Chief Nursing Officer at EmpRes Healthcare Management

Trace Tracking

Taking your ability to pinpoint the exposure source to a different level

Identifying the point of exposure is critical to preventing avoidable future exposure. That’s why Accushield offers a number of reports designed not only to improve your ability to perform trace tracking, but also your ability to identify the number of individuals who may have been exposed.

Our reports enable you to:

  • Access details by date, visitor type, and more
  • Pinpoint individuals exhibiting symptoms during a specific timeframe
  • Identify what the individual was doing while in your facility
  • Evaluate the residents visited in order to implement necessary precautions

“We were staffing the front desks and trying to take temperatures, despite a shortage of thermometers, and we were making sure everyone was signing in correctly… So we were looking at solutions to streamline the testing and screening process and for the eventuality of when we could allow visitors back in. We also wanted to have an accurate record for contact tracing, as well as records of the screenings (and no lost paperwork). It was really about facilitating how we looked at the process for visitor and staff check-ins and being able to have a better record of who is in and out of our buildings.”

CEO, and founder of Majestic Care

Respirator Fit Test Management

OSHA compliance, without the manual spreadsheets

As part of Accushield’s Infection Prevention & Control suite, we’re pleased to offer providers with a respirator fit test management solution designed to simplify the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mandatory fit test guideline and avoid one of the top 10 most cited deficiencies in the healthcare industry.

Our Respirator Fit Test management feature helps to keep you in compliance without creating unnecessary risk by simplifying the fit test workflow and capturing critical data, including:

  • Medical evaluations and signatures required for fit testing
  • Respirator manufacturer details for PPE management
  • Insights and reports that provide managers, surveyors, and other agencies with required data
  • A record of both failed and passed fit test evaluations
  • Sign-in alerts if a staff member signs in with a missing or outdated fit test
  • Due dates for next fit test for each staff member

“It’s definitely been a huge help in saving time with all the updates that occur on a regular basis, as well as its standardized approach to screening. The document manager [feature] has opened up more possibilities, and we do much more with the data at hand… For example, if we had wanted to track when someone is due for their booster, we didn’t have ability to do so. Now, we have so much more customization that if there is a change in regulation we can adapt with the times and not have to wait for Accushield to update all their software. We have the ability to customize it without them having to go into the back end and do it.”

“We designed our Respirator Fit Test management solution with compliance and ease of use in mind. An infection preventionist has a number of responsibilities in a facility – most of them new as regulations have changed.
