Long-Term Care Management Discussion
Long-Term Care Management Discussion – Wk 5
“Medical Care and Nursing Roles in Long-Term Care” Please respond to the following:
- Per the text, when patients cannot receive needed medical care, nursing services, or rehabilitation therapies in a community-based setting, they are typically admitted to a long-term care facility, where medical care is traditionally delivered by physicians and / or practitioners with advanced qualifications. All nursing services in long-term care facilities are delivered by a nursing staff which is headed by a Director of Nursing (DON). Compare and contrast the roles of the medical director and the DON. Select the role which has the overall greater impact on patient care. Provide a rationale for your response.
- Imagine that you are responsible for staffing a long-term care facility with sixty (60) full-time residents. Propose your strategy of selecting the key staff members, and specify their main roles and responsibilities. Support your selections.
