  • Community Benefit: Acting on Mission, Demonstrating Tax-exempt Purpose

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    This program will describe the tradition of non-profit long term care organizations resonding to community need and how the tradition can and is continued today.

These are activities that often reach outside of facility walls and promote the well-being of persons in the community. By providing community benefits, and telling the story of these community benefit activities, nonprofit long term care facilities accomplish the following: help promote well-being in the community, especially among the elderly, low income, and other vulnerable persons; demonstrate they are fulfilling their traditional mission of responding to community needs; maintain a positive image of the organization in the community, and show local taxing authorities they are carrying out their tax-exempt community benefit purpose.

    The system presented involves five steps:
    1.Committing to Community Benefit
    2.Planning and Budgeting for Services
    3.Monitoring Services and Activities
    4.Reporting Community Benefits
    5.Evaluating Effectiveness

  • A Common Sense Approach to Diabetes Management in Post-Acute and Long Term Care

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 04/05/2016

    This webinar will discuss systematic and evidence-based approaches to improve the diabetes management in facilities.

    Patients with diabetes constitute some of the most medically complex patients in nursing facilities. They usually have existing complications, are prone to frequent infections, cardiovascular events, injurious falls, electrolyte disturbances, cognitive impairment, weight fluctuations and hypoglycemia. They have a greater degree of functional impairment and dependence and constitute some of the “heaviest care" patients in the facility. The challenges of managing diabetes in Post-Acute and Long term Care may be characterized as attributable to resident and disease, facility, staff and practitioner, and medication management factors. Treatment regimens vary widely, may be unnecessarily complex, and place the patient at risk of hypoglycemia. This webinar will discuss systematic and evidence-based approaches to improve the diabetes management in facilities.



    Learning Objectives:

    1. Review the challenges in diabetes management from the patient, facility, and practitioner perspectives.
    2. Describe a systematic approach to pharmacotherapy, individualizing control, and monitoring of glycemia, and of diabetes care at the patient and facility level.
    3. Provide examples of selection of treatment regimens, discontinuation of sliding scale insulin, minimization of hypoglycemia risk, and diabetes care at the end of life.
