Insider's Guide To Better Nursing Home Care by Donna M. Reed
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As the baby-boomer generation ages, nursing home care is likely to become a major social problem. New residents will put huge strains on already short staffing at a time when funding to government-assisted homes (75 per cent of all nursing homes) is lower than ever. Based on her ten years of experience working as a Licensed Practical Nurse in many care facilities, attorney Donna M Reed shares her insider knowledge to help ensure that nursing home residents receive the best care possible.Reed focuses on the following key points: the legal requirements of nursing homes regarding delivery of care; the ways in which many nursing homes regularly break these laws; detailed descriptions of how the typical nursing home operates; the responsibilities of each nursing home employee; nursing home inspections; residents' rights; how to avoid substandard care; and, what actions to take to improve nursing home life. Reed's first-hand trawl of nursing home care and her in-depth understanding of the legal requirements that protect residents offer invaluable information to readers concerned about a loved one in a nursing home.
