Nursing Procedure Guide for Long-Term Care
Provide quality resident care with 395 expert-reviewed, regulatory-compliant procedures. Ensure consistent documentation and care across all disciplines—a critical component to survey success.
Every nursing home needs procedures to ensure quality care is provided and for legal protection. Don’t put your facility in jeopardy with in-house procedures that may not be up to current clinical and regulatory standards.
This book offers:
- A quick reference when treating residents—The procedures will guide frontline staff through clinical issues they encounter every day.
- Preparation for your next survey—Surveyors will check your facility’s procedures to verify you’re providing quality care that meets the regulations.
- Training for new long-term care nurses—Many nurses have little formal long-term care training before they start working in nursing homes. These procedures will provide guidance and ensure that nursing staff provide consistent, compliant care.
- A consistent format—Every procedure includes a list of supplies and the exact steps to take to perform it.
