Our ltc facility started using Accunurse headsets a couple months ago- I was just curious to see if anyone else has been using them, and what your opinions are of the system?
I’m with AccuNurse and just ran across your posts. We’re really sorry some of you are experiencing some issues. I have a couple of tips that I think will help. With regard to the cords, during training, we show users how to tuck the cords into clothing so it’s not dangling in front of you. It’s also helpful to not wear the headset in front of residents; but rather keep it around your neck (like a stethoscope is worn). Then, when you’re away from your care initiative, you can slip it on quickly and document. No worries about HIPAA because the system refers to residents by room number, not by name. Plus, since you’re responding to its prompts, no one around you can hear what the system is asking. Hope this helps!
