Comprehensive coverage of regulations affecting long-term care facilities
As the U.S. population ages, the number of individuals requiring short or long stays in nursing homes and long-term care facilities will continue to rise. In this environment it is essential that healthcare leaders and others involved in senior care maintain compliance with current regulations while striving to provide high-quality, cost-effective care to residents and families.
The Nursing Home Administration Regulations Course offered by the University of Delaware provides students with an understanding of the regulations that govern long-term care facilities as well as the rationale behind the regulation in order for participants to fully integrate these rules into practice. Participants will be challenged to identify interventions that improve the current delivery of long-term care services in the community and to find ways to improve the nursing, psychosocial and medical care affecting residents, families and staff.
The program emphasizes relevant federal and Delaware regulations and focuses on the impact of these rules on the delivery of resident care.
