Senior Care Visitation Management

-sponsored post- Even as states is easing up the visitation regulations to nursing homes, there are still many limitations and it's definitely not going back to business as usual. Many facilities are moving to outdoor visits only and are limiting it to just 2 visitors per day. In general terms, although the need for visitation is great, it's being done a very controlled way. And this is where Accushield comes in - Accushield is providing senior care providers with a tool that will help manage the flow of people in and out of the facility. With built in reporting, this provides a real way for operators to understand and mitigate the health risks to their residents and staff, posed by visitors.

Senior Care Visitation Management

Do Hospital Discharge Planners Still Control Your Census?

It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. We all know how this was true in the past. If you had a good relationship with a hospital discharge planner, you were more likely to get the patient. Nowadays, most hospitals won’t let you in unless you’re actually ‘screening’ a particular patient. They are more focused on results. Ensure a good clinical outcome and a great patient experience and they will send you more patients. So the question resurfaces, do hospital discharge planners still hold the keys to a nursing home’s successful census development?

Do Hospital Discharge Planners Still Control Your Census?

Healthcare Workers Need Self-Care During Covid-19

Managing Through Covid-19; An Administrator's Perspective

Nursing homes are branded by the media as a death machine, an abuse factory, and a very unpleasant, albeit necessary, place. When in fact nothing could be further from the truth. The nursing home personnel are some of the most selfless people on the planet. While the typical person is wiping down our Amazon packages and only stepped outside of our homes for a quick and stressful trip to the grocery (or liquor store). In the nursing home world, it's business as usual. Everyone is expected to continue with business as usual. Regular 24/7 staffing. Nurses. CNAs (nurses aides). Dietary. Rehab. Maintenance staff. Housekeeping team. Administrative support staff. Everyone showed up to every day and put themselves in harm's way to care for the most vulnerable of society with no one else to care for them. The #itsme movement on social media has been trying to capture the essence of the kindred spirits in the space, however, it's not loud enough. Yet. Here, at The Nursing Home Podcast, we are highlighting nursing home administrators who've managed through this crisis and we will share with the world their experience and lens of this crisis.

Managing Through Covid-19; An Administrator's Perspective

Did The Coronavirus Make Nursing Homes Rich?

Nursing homes have struggled for survival over the last years and, unfortunately, many have closed their doors because they were no longer financially viable (read: they couldn't afford to stay open). Recently, there were a few government handouts to nursing homes that really put a lot of money in their pockets in the short run. This should really equip them to manage through the rest of this crisis even with all the added expenses. But is it enough? Let's find out!

What Should I post on Linkedin?

Recognize and respect the fact that your connections on Linkedin are real people. This should be guiding light in defining what to post and how to engage. There's no simple rule of how to post just like there's no simple rule as to what to say in person. Engage online just as you would in person. Litmus test: Are you embarrassed when you meet your Linkedin friends in real life? Is there a disconnect between your online self and who you really are?

Support Your Nursing Home Staff During Coronavirus Outbreaks

The hospital staff are hailed as heroes as they truly are - but why aren't the nursing home staff given the same level of support from the community? Nurses and CNAs are also risking their lives working with extremely limited resources to care for the world's most vulnerable population.
