Relying on pencil and paper schedules or spreadsheets often means a complete lack of visibility into staffing—and this lack of visibility can be costly to any senior care organization.

Thanks for reporting a problem. We'll attach technical data about this session to help us figure out the issue. Which of these best describes the problem?
Any other details or context?
We have 63 skilled nursing facilities throughout California, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada, primarily skilled nursing, but also assisted living and some memory care
We’ve been using OnShift since we started in July. We started our rollout in July and finished just around the middle of September and one of the primary reasons we chose OnShift was because they focused on long-term care.
For scheduling, we were on Excel-based, paper-based scheduling applications
So moving away from paper to something online, something that allowed us to have analytics, reporting, was certainly a decision factor
I think the biggest benefit is that we’re able to be compliant with the PBJ regulations. That was first and foremost the reason that we went to OnShift was to be compliant
Some of those other benefits that we’re experiencing, things like overtime, seeing trending, predictable analytics, the ability to have a dashboardWith OnShift, we have a nice dashboard that actually shows us those details. Who’s up for overtime? How many call-offs do we have this week? It gives us that visibility that we never had before, which is which is important to us.
