QuietCare®: The right care at the right time
Installing QuietCare in resident apartments helps assisted living communities
provide information to their staff that can help facilitate the right care
at the right time, and help improve resident health and well-being.
Flagging an unseen health issue
A resident in an assisted living facility of a not-for-profit, multi-site
organization had nine nighttime bathroom visits one evening.
The staff checked on him the next morning after receiving the
QuietCare alert to this unusual overnight activity. It was clear
that although he had previously not appeared ill, he was very
sick and needed immediate medical attention. Taken to the
hospital, he was found to have severe gall bladder problems,
necessitating immediate surgery.
Early identification of UTIs
One recent evening a resident of a New York-based not-for-
profit multi-site assisted living community had four nighttime
bathroom visits, an unusually high number for her. She appeared
fine to staff and family, but based on the QuietCare report, a
UTI test was ordered and found to be positive. Antibiotics were
Detecting falls and emergencies
A resident fell in the bathroom before lunch. She was weak
and struggling due to gastrointestinal distress, but was unable
to call for assistance. QuietCare alerted the staff of her assisted
living facility, one of several communities owned by a New
York-based, not-for-profit organization, to the extended time in
the bathroom, and they immediately checked on her. She was
cleaned up and assisted back to her bedroom.
