  • ALWAYS SAFE, NEVER SORRY: Emergency and Disaster Preparedness for Long-Term Care Facilities

    The easily recognized Scout Motto is "Be Prepared," so is your facility? Even though no one wishes for disaster, it is imperative and required that every employee be ready for anything if their care facility is at risk. How long will it take you to get residents sheltered from a tornado? Are there security measures in place for gunfire? Are you ready for when every conceivable step in your plan is trumped by escalating disaster?

  • Don’t Fear the Future: How to Better Understand Technology in Long-Term Care

    Technology is here to make our lives easier, but unless we know how to properly utilize existing and upcoming tech, the opposite may be true. Whether it’s as simple as a medicine-tracking spreadsheet or as complex as trying to understand the cloud, it’s important that you and everyone in your facility are up to date on training and use of technology in the senior care field.

  • At Work in Long-Term | Post-Acute Care

    Paperwork, compliance, bureaucracy: All these day-to-day practices are important for a long-term care facility’s existence. However, when they start to inundate clinicians’ time and impede their ability to focus on residents, there needs to be a call-to-action at the facility to ensure the quality of care and employee engagement remain high while distractions are at a minimum.

  • eBook: Challenge to Change the Workforce: The Obstacles and Benefits of Employee Engagement

    The No. 1 goal of any long-term care facility is to provide quality care and resident safety, but that goal gets muddied with a workforce that is disengaged, poorly trained, and overall unhappy. High turnover rates, small labor budgets, and an inflexible employment strategy can and will cause problems for both facilities and residents. Recruitment is only strong if there is a high retention rate, productivity is only solid with an engaged staff, and resident safety is best maintained with properly trained caregivers.

  • eBook: Good Choices for Good Changes: Using Data to Improve Facility Transitions

    Continuing education for physicians, constantly improving on medications, and updating and upgrading facilities keep the “long-term” in “long-term living,” but how do we know what’s working and what to move on from? From a medical chart to an EHR, the answer comes from data.

    In this eBook – presented by Omnicare, a CVS Health company – the importance of data in the long-term care world comes to light. Discover how detailed, accessible, and secure data can make facility transitions, medication, and general care easier for providers and patients.

  • Using Data for Quality Management and Care Collaboration

    Knowing what data is important to your organization, and then understanding how to leverage it is becoming crucial to the success of long-term care organizations. With changing payment models, providers can no longer just claim they are a ‘low-risk’ facility – they must have the data to back this up.
