With so much equipment now requiring routine testing and servicing, it is increasingly difficult to have all the paperwork, inspection certificates, LOLER certificates etc up-to date and readily available when needed. It is all too easy for these to become lost, or filed away in the wrong place.
Two years ago, SCM, Southern Care Maintenance Ltd introduced a new on-line and secure customer portal, mySCM, which has been providing a real benefit to their customers.
This provides, free of charge to all customers who have a service contract, a central repository which is available 24/7 and stores all this information together in one place. Copies of job sheets, certificates and invoices can easily be retrieved and printed out again should the originals become misplaced providing peace of mind.
Continuing with the technological advancements of the modern day, it is now possible to upgrade an old Fire Alarm System and Nurse Call System in under a week. Gone are the days of engineers installing cables and being present on site for a number of weeks as, with the new Radio Nurse Call, a call point can be fitted in a resident’s room within a matter of minutes.
Flexibility is a real benefit with the new Radio Nurse Call as units can easily be repositioned when necessary, and multiple displays can be positioned around the care home to ensure staff never miss a call which further improves efficiency.
SCM have two divisions which between them cover a huge range of equipment and systems for both supply and servicing, from Hoists, Fire Alarm Systems and Nurse Call. They operate throughout the south-east, including Kent, East and West Sussex, Surrey, Essex and South London postcodes.
