Nursing Home staffing is proven as vitally important to resident care.
Staffing is critical as Nursing Home residents require varying degrees of hands on and professional care. Dedicated nurses, aides and other professionals all are part of a collaborative team. Good and accepted nursing home practice establishes policies as to what is proper.
Studies repeatedly confirm that facilities with insufficient levels of staffing are responsible for disproportionate instances of harm, abuse and neglect. This clear fact is not a reflection on the countless numbers of dedicated woman and men who care for residents of Nursing Homes. It is a call to action for the owners and operators of these facilities to hire more qualified staff.
The risks are clear. Falls, bedsores, wandering, elopement, medication areas all occur with higher frequency at facilities with insufficient staffing levels. Legal assistance is available call today 866-699-1152.
Regrettably, over the past few years our Federal Government has rolled back protections for residents and lessened oversight of the industry. This fact is documented by the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and watchdog agencies such as the Long Term Care Community Coalition (“LTCCC).
“The Trump Administration and some officials in Congress are currently working to decimate basic safety standards and accountability when a vulnerable resident is abused,” said Richard Mollot, LTCCC’s executive director. “Though transparency is not a substitute for oversight, information on staffing can help seniors and their families make the best choices possible and advocate for good care for the residents in their facilities and communities.”
