What Is Assisted Living Employee Scheduling?

Managing the staff schedule for nursing homes, clinics, assisted living centers, residential care or other care facilities is a big and  ever-growing challenge. As an industry that is genuinely 24x7, there are high expectations to properly track varying shifts across multiple locations to find the most qualified caregiver or nurse for the resident based on the employee’s training, certifications, bed-side manner and availability. Even more, if there are coverage gaps or someone calls in sick, managers have to be ready to quickly find the right replacement or else potentially fail in their duty of care.

Instead of making phone calls to chase down qualified replacements or using excel-like spreadsheets to manually schedule employees, there are faster and easier employee scheduling software solutions like for keeping employees instantly and effortlessly updated on their schedules 24x7 through the web, text or through innovative mobile apps.

If a resource calls in sick or simply doesn’t show assisted living managers can quickly find a replacement with just a tap. Such advanced scheduling solutions allow employees to quickly swap shifts, grab open shifts and switch schedules between different locations, and according to specific medical training and certifications, all via their mobile phones or other handheld device. Employees can even clock in with their photo or GPS and instantly access  tasks and review important updates. One of the key benefits of scheduling software solutions like is there are no lock-in contracts while price points range from a mere $1 to $3 per employee per month.
