Where to find Accident and Incident Reports in Famly

You can securely log accidents or incidents at your setting in Famly. The creation of a report will lead to the parent being notified and will require their acknowledgement. To find Accident and Incident Reports:

Simply log in to Famly, and click on the Children icon, then select Safeguarding and choose the Accidents from the drop down menu.

You can also find accident and incident reports in the 'Reports' tab of an individual child's Profile


How to create a new Accident or Incident Report

You can create a new accident or incident report from either the Reports tab on the child's Profile, or from the Accidents section in Safeguarding, both by clicking New.

On the first page of the report, you will simply need to fill out the required fields.

Clicking Next will prompt you to the body map (as below). Here you can:

  • Mark a dot on the location of the injury on the body

  • Adjust the size of the dot, move it around or delete it

  • Make multiple dots

  • Choose a full body view, side view or a close-up of the head

As your final step, review your report on the next page before notifying parents.

Once you click Create and Notify, the parent will then receive a notification. The parent will be able to view and acknowledge the accident with ease. They do this by pressing the Acknowledge Accident button.


How do I record injuries that happened at home?

You can also use accident and incident forms to note accidents at home. There are two ways to do this:

  1. Recording an existing injury with an incident form
    - Open the Safeguarding section and select the Accidents from the drop down-menu.
    - Click New
    - Select Incident from the drop-down menu called Kind
    - Click in the box labelled Noticed on Arrival
    - You can then use the When and how were parents notified box to explain how you came to know about the injury.

2. Recording an existing injury with an accident form
- Open the Safeguarding section and select the Accidents from the drop-down menu.
- Click New
- Select Accident from the drop-down menu called Kind
- In the Location box, create a location called Happened at home or similar - whatever makes the most sense to your setting.

- You can use the Nature of accident / incident to note how the parents explain what happened.
- You can then use the When and how were parents notified box to explain how you came to know about the injury.

N.B. Recording existing injuries by using a specific location (such as 'Happened at home') means you can then filter the report for this 'location'.


How do I get an overview of Accidents and Incidents in my setting?

In the Accidents section from the Safeguarding drop-down menu you can see a record of all previous reports in your setting. You can filter by:

  • Date

  • Location

  • Child's name

  • Who reported the accident or incident

  • Whether the report is of an incident or an accident
