Good Care Should be a Given!

January 17, 2014:  Conversations with Carmen

Guest: Maricel Glova, RN, Action Pact Consultant and experienced DON.

Quality of life includes quality of care. In your community, do residents get to the bathroom when they need to? Better yet, are residents’ bathroom needs anticipated?  In addition to the obvious benefits, this also leads to preventing falls. Is mouth care happening regularly every day? Are medications administered according to residents’ schedules? And is sleep honored according to the person’s circadian rhythm?

Hear strategies for the varying stages of culture – from traditional to households – for ensuring that good care is a given. Only then can a resident achieve highest practicable well-being. This is not only a great idea but also a federal requirement.
