Project Title: SOS Checklist App
The SOS Checklist digitizes the Sensory Observation System to allow care providers to gain meaningful insight into a frail elderly client’s health status to assist in preventing and managing acute deterioration associated with unnecessary hospital emergency transfers. It is intended to support caregivers at the bedside to advocate for health status changes occurring in their elderly clients. This app provides a complete and precise checklist of systems related to body functions and the environment to support healthcare workers in assessing and intervening in a timely way when working with the frail elderly.
