AccuNurse(R) Improves Productivity Throughout Four Facilities, Improves State Survey Results and Enables Resident Care Teams to Boost Time with

Residents

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Vocollect Healthcare Systems, Inc., the leading provider of voice-assisted care, announces that Peninsula United Methodist Homes, Inc. (PUMH), located in Hockessin, Delaware, has completed its enterprise-wide implementation of AccuNurse voice-assisted care at all four of their skilled nursing facilities in Delaware and Maryland. This investment covers all 225 of their skilled nursing facility residents has improved care-staff productivity, enabled more proactive care and boosted time with residents. PUMH first deployed AccuNurse in Cokesbury Village; Country House was next to come online, followed by Manor House; and then Heron Point in Chestertown, Maryland.

At two of the four facilities, PUMH replaced the kiosks they were using to document care with AccuNurse voice-assisted care. As a result, PUMH was able to provide its care staff the capability to access information on-demand, complete paperwork simply by talking, and get immediate help by saying 'page.' "AccuNurse was the bridge to more time at the bedside - getting our CNAs away from paper or touch screens and allowing them to have more time with our residents," said Donna Pomeroy, director of health services for PUMH Cokesbury Village in Hockessin, Delaware. "Multitasking is a huge productivity gain and AccuNurse enables this like no other system." Prior to AccuNurse the facility reported three overlapping shifts of 8.5 hours each. The half-hour overlap was used for documentation and reporting, and with AccuNurse is no longer needed. "We've seen 30 minutes per CNA given back to our residents," according to Theresa Green, RN at Cokesbury Village.

The care team at Cokesbury's sister facility, Country House, has seen similar gains, including a 19% drop in turnover
