I think non-compliance with state and federal regulations is often not deliberate, but due to a lack of understanding of the regulation itself.
VALLEY STREAM, N.Y. (PRWEB) March 15, 2016
In the world of long-term care, regulations are a confusing yet vital part of the profession. Imagine, rather than digging through book after book to find a piece of information, there was a comprehensive, easy-to-read reference guide for all things long-term care.
Well, now there is.
In her new book, “A Practical Guide to Qualitative Healthcare,” author Jane Gabbidon helps long-term care professionals and those studying to enter the field better understand industry regulations and in turn, provide higher quality care for patients.
“I think non-compliance with state and federal regulations is often not deliberate, but due to a lack of understanding of the regulation itself,” Gabbidon said. “Most healthcare regulations are not taught in schools and even experienced nurses do not have access to the regulation manuals. Essentially a long-term care professional’s knowledge base is only as good as the facility’s educator.”
Gabbidon is currently a corporate clinical consultant at a large healthcare organization that manages and owns over 29 nursing homes, but previously worked as a long-term care nurse for 20 years. “A Practical Guide to Qualitative Healthcare” not only summarizes these industry regulations, but does so in conjunction with Gabbidon’s own proven, tried, evidence-based practices.
“When everyone in a facility, from housekeeping to the head nurse, have an understanding of all areas if the regulations, it translates into quality care for residents,” Gabbidon said.
