Routine observations are a critical part of helping ensure the safety of patients during their stay in inpatient mental health facilities, as well as promoting therapeutic engagement with patients. Staff carry out observations sometimes as frequently as every 15 minutes. Currently, in person safety checks and paper-based observation methods are widely used. This approach can lead to patients being disturbed which could impact their rest and privacy. It is also time-consuming for staff and has at times been linked to serious shortfalls in patient safety and safeguarding, despite the best efforts of already overstretched clinical teams.
Oxevision Observations1 enables mental health professionals to make and document accurate, patient-centred, therapeutically valuable and auditable observations.
Therapeutically valuable and patient-centered mental health observations that do not disturb patients
Help staff (including bank and agency) take accurate and timely observations
Save over 33% of the time2 it takes staff to complete observations and scan paper records
Enable senior staff to audit compliance with observation levels and adherence to policies and reduce risk of falsified records
Partner with an expert in using data to enable safer, higher quality and more efficient mental health patient care to deploy a system that is compatible with all EPR providers3
Oxevision Observations can be accessed 24/7 via portable devices or a fixed screen in the nursing station, just like the other Oxevision modules. When patients are in their rooms at night, staff can carry out their safety checks remotely - instead of going into patients' rooms and disturbing them.

The time savings for the four wards were then averaged to generate results for a single ward that is considered to be representative of all wards in the trust. 3 Subject to integration.
