Safe Site Check In Expands Digital Check In to Assisted Living and Long Term Care Facilities
Campbell Creek House Selects Private Digital Check In to Improve Resident, Visitor and Employee Safety
SAN FRANCISCO – October 25, 2021 – As digital check-in becomes part of standard protocols for entering public buildings, Safe Site Check In today announced its expansion into assisted living and nursing home facilities. The company’s digital check in app keeps personal health information private and is used in thousands of offices and construction sites to manage onsite employees, contractors, and visitors. Based on the widespread adoption of Safe Site Check In, especially in healthcare construction, the company is expanding to support the needs of administrators, security, and management at assisted living and healthcare facilities.
Anchorage, Alaska-based Campbell Creek House, which offers senior living and care services, relies on Safe Site Check In to manage onsite visitors. According to Sandy Vasquez, Campbell Creek House administrator, “Safe Site Check In helps advance healthcare facilities into the 21st century. It’s easy to use, provides up-to-the-minute visitor information to management and key employees, and keeps our visitor logs private and confidential.”
In addition to eliminating paper-based logs, Campbell Creek House uses Safe Site Check In alongside a contactless temperature monitor. “Safe Site Check In’s contactless check-in app frees up staffing and helps reduce unnecessary exposure to COVID-19 while also meeting state visitor log requirements,” Vazquez said.
Upon arrival, people use their smartphone to scan a facility-specific QR code provided by Safe Site Check In. Based on the facility’s requirements, the employee or visitor can be shown one or more questions on their smartphone screen. These questions can address vaccination status or direct visitors to a specific part of the building.
A facility administrator can also use Safe Site Check In to document the arrival and departure times of employees and contractors and request workers privately and securely upload a picture of their official vaccination card with dates of inoculation. Weekly reports provide additional insight used for capacity planning, facility management, and staffing.
However, a facility does not have access to personal health information or any other data on the employee’s or visitor’s smartphone. Personal health information is only stored on a visitor’s smartphone, not uploaded or shared, further ensuring compliance with health data privacy laws and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Safe Site Check In is not used for persistent tracking of users’ location information, nor to assist with tracking users for public health monitoring. Rather, it is used for private contact tracing or as proof of an employer meeting local or federal guidelines for ensuring vaccination or COVID-19 testing status of everybody on site.
“As Safe Site Check In was being used more and more by office managers and event organizers, we also saw an uptick in interest among assisted living facilities. Working with Campbell Creek House to tailor the app to the specific needs of healthcare facilities resulted in a more efficient way for administrators to manage visitors while also creating new opportunities for Safe Site Check In,” said David Ward, CEO and founder, Safe Site Check In.
Assisted living facilities can try Safe Site Check In for free the first month.
