Would you want to be a resident in your facility?

Reader comments:

“I used to be able to say I would live in this facility, but since we were purchased by a hospital that has no experience with LTC and has made many changes (not good ones), I no longer would say that. As a matter of fact, I no longer recommend this facility as a place to live or stay—it is no longer a home, only a place for the hospital to make a buck.”

“Only if my needs were great and my living arrangement was private and with options.”

“In fact, I was, following a serious car accident last year. As administrator, I lived in my own facility for 2½ months. I’ve started speaking to trade groups about my experience and it’s changed my perspective tremendously.”
