Housekeeping Scheduling and Administration in EmLucy
Housekeeping schedules and administration are important components of maintaining a clean, safe, and healthy environment in a skilled nursing facility. EmLucy as a facility management system with integrated EHR includes automated housekeeping scheduling.
Before using EmLucy, staff assesses the facility's cleaning needs and develops a housekeeping plan. This plan should outline the housekeeping tasks that need to be performed, the frequency, and the resources required to complete each task.
EmLucy automates the assignment of housekeeping tasks to specific individuals or teams, and clearly communicates expectations and task completion. Some examples include cleaning, laundry, and clearing of hazardous conditions.
EmLucy enables development of a cleaning schedule that outlines the tasks that need to be performed on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis. Be sure to include routine tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, and disinfecting high-touch surfaces, as well as less frequent tasks such as deep cleaning and maintenance.
EmLucy allows management to monitor the cleaning schedule to ensure that tasks are being completed on time and to the required standard. SNF management adjusts the schedule as needed to account for changes in staffing levels, occupancy rates, or other factors that may impact cleaning needs.
Using technology such as cleaning checklists, automated scheduling tools like EmLucy, and cleaning tracking software helps manage the cleaning process more efficiently.
EmLucy's housekeeping scheduling feature allows management to provide feedback to cleaning staff on their performance and recognize and reward good performance to help maintain motivation and morale.
By establishing a cleaning plan, assigning tasks and responsibilities, establishing a schedule, monitoring progress, using the auto-scheduling technology in EmLucy, SNF management ensures a clean and compliant facility. It also gives management the tool to provide feedback to cleaning staff to ensure that a facility is clean, safe, and healthy for residents, staff, and visitors.
