Long term care is very exciting, self rewarding, fast paced, goal driven and work performance incentive based.
Pros: corporate support, empowerment, health benefits, bonus incentives
Cons: admin. benefits only, healthcare shortages and reforms
I utilized leadership by walking around the facility to ensure every day practices, uses of their systems and monitoring outcomes regularly with an eye watchful for opportunity to improve care. On a daily a basis I would attend the daily stand up morning meetings with all department supervisors, daily revenue meetings while maintaining the PPS RUG tracking worksheets for updates and review the payer aging summary reports. I would monitor and log the
weekly census and staffing reports based on employees total hours, actual PPD, budget PPD, and variance PPD. I applied action plans and in-services for staff members to ensure proper protocols and techniques were being utilized. I created and implemented programs and events, which reach the general community for the purpose of creating facility name recognition, positive facility image and community good will towards the facility.
The corporate culture of Creative Solutions in Healthcare is grounded in the golden rule and Christian ethic of, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
I have learned that operating under this golden rule is key for providing superior quality of care to those of the senior community. As the Administrator in Training/Marketer for Creative Solutions in Healthcare and Southern Specialty, I am dedicated to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all their residents and to always practice dignity first through the provision of superior quality of care in a “home-like” environment for those in need(s) of skilled health care service(s).
We developed and enhanced a professional team that is – more... adequately trained, licensed and certified to handle everything from the medically challenged resident who may need to be discharged from the hospital but still requires a higher level of medical care to the self-reliant resident who only needs minimal medical assistance in health care needs. We are committed to delivering uncompromising excellence in short and long term care to the residents which is covered under the Medicaid and Medicare programs.
Connecting and caring for the residents and family members is very rewarding after confirmation of testimonials for satisfaction on stellar provisions of skilled nursing services in an utmost "home-like" environment. I would have to concur that losing a resident is one of the hardest parts of the job in long term care. – less
