Searching For Channels

You can search for channels you create, are invited to or join or available to the public.  You can only access a channel based on the type of the channel outlined when creating a channel and role. ex. If the channel type is HIPAA compliant you can only access based on the location specified for that channel.  After accessing the channel screen you can view the left curtain by clicking the top left corner as shown in Fig. 1.

Abuse

 

As documented in 6400.14, abuse of an individual is prohibited. Abuse is an act or omission of an act that willfully deprives an individual of rights or human dignity or which may cause or causes actual physical injury or emotional harm to an individual, such as striking or kicking an individual; neglect; rape; sexual molestation, sexual exploitation or sexual harassment of an individual; sexual contact between a staff person and an individual; restraining an individual without following the requirements in this chapter; financial exploitation of an individual; humiliating an individual; or withholding regularly scheduled meals.

Ongoing monitoring of abuse can be difficult when using paper or other traditional methods.   Current passive systems rely on the actual user to document themselves as the abuser which very rare. With Optonome, providers are able to use real-time sensor data to compare actual behaviors of all known direct care workers, friends, family members, advocates or the general public in the vicinity of the resident without requiring any documentation of abuse.

Such behavioral information can be used to proactively document incidents and document reportable and non-reportable incidents required time frames.
