From that assessment, care plans will be created which shall detail how each Resident would like their care delivered, using best practice guidelines. Cairnhill Nursing Home operate an electronic Resident record system called EpicCare.

Each Resident’s record on EpicCare is reviewed regularly and updated by a Nurse and the Resident to include all the Resident’s changes or preferences. It is designed to maintain the Resident’s independence and to ensure their personal dignity. A hardcopy of the Resident record can be made available also for ease of review.
