The SBAR assessment includes situation, background, assessment and recommendation.
Our digital SBAR assessment is used in care homes using a tablet.
It captures both a NEWS2 score as well as a range of information regarding the patient’s condition.
Once an assessment is submitted, it is sent to an admin centre that can be monitored by healthcare professionals. Assessments are then reviewed and can be escalated as appropriate.
Immediate responses can be sent directly back to the care support staff.
The SBAR assessment service is being deployed in care homes across the County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust region.
