Download this free PDF to conduct a thorough evaluation of a nursing home or assisted-living facility.

A nursing home safety checklist is a useful tool that helps users conduct thorough surveys to evaluate nursing home facilities to choose the best and safest environment for their loved one.

This page will discuss:

  • Nursing home safety checklist requirements
  • The purpose of a nursing home safety checklist
  • Benefits of using a nursing home safety checklist app

What are the requirements of a nursing home safety checklist?

A nursing home safety checklist helps users conduct thorough inspections of nursing homes or assisted living facilities to select the best environment for an elderly or infirm person. It should cover all aspects of the facility, including its certifications, staff, activities, meal options, amenities and safety protocols.

Who uses a nursing home safety evaluation checklist and why?

Anyone can use a nursing home safety checklist, but it is most frequently employed by people who are evaluating options for an elderly parent of loved one. A thorough survey will reveal whether the facility has nurses or pharmacists on staff, whether residents are given adequate privacy, and what the grievance processes are to enable users to feel confident in the nursing home they choose.

Why use the nursing home safety checklist app?

Paper checklists are messy and can easily be damaged, torn or lost. Plus, a proper nursing home safety checklist is several pages long, compounding the problem. A nursing home safety checklist app enables users to conduct surveys conveniently on their mobile device, automatically attaching photos, videos and other multimedia to ensure a thorough evaluation. It also makes it easy to compare the features of the different facilities inspected with a user-friendly dashboard.

It is so easy to use that our training period is greatly shortened. Data quality is very important to us so it can’t be overly complicated. We still get the same data quality regardless if it is a junior or senior data collector.
