Summary

Tools for making long-term care facilities into caring and desirable places to live and work

Written for health care administrators, medical directors, nursing executives, architects, and facility planners, Adding Value to Long-Term Care is a comprehensive resource that provides the tools and information needed to improve the clinical environment for residents, staff, and families; strengthen overall business operations; and secure a facility's financial future. This essential book and companion diskette are filled with a wealth of down-to-earth advice, helpful checklists, and easily reproducible forms-tools for effective business and clinical planning.

Authors Dianne Lazer and Tobi Schwartz-Cassell present a comprehensive approach-The Value System-that will help to improve the structure of residents' days with a new model of programming, reenergize staff training and motivation, revitalize staff so they can engage productively with residents' families, and improve compliance with regulatory demands.
