We love the hands-free nature of AccuNurse for increased productivity and multitasking. We also like the fact that our caregivers will get resident-specific care plan updates throughout the day, which enables efficient delivery of more personalized care for our residents. No other product on the market today captures the entire care process and helps caregivers manage that process throughout each day. AccuNurse is exactly what we've been searching for and we believe it will revolutionize care within our facilities. It's like having a manager in your ear, keeping you on track throughout the day. It will exponentially increase the level of care we provide."
