MEDI-BOOK Dashboard iMAC

Record Accidents and Injuries using structured online forms.

Using our simple forms, you can quickly record the key information of any accidents that take place on or off the premises in as little as 30 seconds.

The system automatically populates the common information such as date, incident number and who is reporting the accident, leaving the user to input the important details.

As with every change from paper based forms to electronic ones it can often seem a little daunting, however through the use of multi-choice check box responses and structured responses this transition is made much easier.

Even if the incident is added later in the day you can still note down the time it took place, this can be useful if medication has been issued or a wound has been dressed for example.

This can be very important to know as if it becomes a recurring theme, that accidents keep happening in one location, then it starts to become a safety risk.

This is an important part of the form as it is crucial to know where the injury is on the person in order to be able to treat them accordingly.

This is also very important as this part details what the injury actually is, for example a cut or a dislocation.

This part of the accident form is where the user specifies how the accident happened for example, a fall/trip or hit by an object.

This is for any immediate treatment that is needed after an accident such as cleaning up a wound.

Depending on the seriousness of the accident/injury the first aider can recommend what should happen next for example, simply return to their class or parent contacted and sent home.

There is also an additional notes box for any extra information you have about the accident / injury.

This can be very important, even if the person reporting the illness is unsure of what it is, as even a vague idea of an illness can be a positive.

If the person reporting the illness isn’t sure of what it could be then this section is crucial, as adding symptoms the person is presenting with can help to narrow down what the illness could be.
