Exception reporting is generated automatically by the software if there is a breach of safe working hours.
This is sent to the doctor’s supervisor and the Guardian of Safe Working Hours. Medical staff can also initiate their own exception reports which are automatically cascaded.
The software generates reminders to ensure the reports are resolved within the prescribed timeframe.
The outcome of the exception report is automatically recorded and if time off in lieu is granted, the software will suggest when this should be taken. The software allows the doctor to record that the proposed resolution has actually been actioned.
