Nursing and allied health students must all spend time working in the field; the theory taught within the classroom will always need to be supplemented by practical, hands-on time. Not only is this crucial for students to be able to practice what they have learned, they also need to know they are capable of looking after real people.
However, many hospitals struggle with having enough staff to look after these students. It is essential for them to have the cover in place which will allow a good level of customer care; and adequate staff to monitor and train every student.
Unfortunately, it can be a logistic nightmare keeping track of all the students who need to complete the practical aspect of their course and making sure the staffs are available to assist them. It requires constant communication between the school, the medical facility and the student; something that could be very time consuming.
This is why Rotation Manager (https://rotationmanager.com/faqs/) has created rotation scheduling and compliance software. The hospital, school and student are all connected via the online application. It is designed along the lines of a giant, computerized filing cabinet. All information is centrally stored and, with the right password and access details, can be accessed at any time by the appropriate people.
Students are able to upload any clinical rotation requirement to the system and it can be accessed by the hospital or the school. For example, the system is utilized to ensure compliance with regards to immunizations, background checks, drug screenings, and student orientation materials. This ensure both sides can stay up to date with the latest developments and plan the work activities according to a student’s level in his or her program of study. More importantly, the system allows a hospital to track both the students and instructors, thereby ensuring the students are able to learn whilst customer care is upheld to the required standard.
There are three key stages to get anyone started on the system:
1. Building the hospital requirements list. These are the documents a student needs for every rotation.
2. Create an account. The software is kept online so getting started is easy, you will be given a user name and password to enable you to connect with the hospitals you are associated with.
3. Finally, allow your students to register themselves so they may access their rotation information.
