Chronic health problems

asked June 17, 2013 | 0 followers | follow | 7 answers

So many people have multiple long term issues with Diabetes, obesity, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. How do you help these people get into a lifestyle program to improve their health or prevent more complications from the above? The Adult Day Care population I’ve worked with is mostly Hispanic and most of the clients have at least 2 of the above if not all of the above diagnoses. I’ve tried counseling and exercise programs and just haven’t made any significant progress. These issues have become major health problems for America. How can we begin the fix this?


Policies on Sex in Assisted Living Facilities

asked May 30, 2013 | 0 followers | follow | 4 answers

I have never had a problem with consenting elders engaging in sexual activity. Recently, however, I have seen some cases of STD in my facility. I know assisted living facilities and nursing homes are notorious for having a high rate of STDs so I want to nip this in the bud, so to speak. Does anyone have a policy about this that I can further study? Your feedback would be most helpful.

Regards,
Christina


RN Case managers doing UR?

asked May 21, 2013 | 0 followers | follow | 0 answers

Hi!
Currently, we have our RN Case Managers doing utilization reviews along with their other duties (discharge planning, etc). I know that some systems have chosen to have these roles done by separate people. I would be interested to hear the advantages and disadvantages of having them separate. If anyone is willing to share their perspective I’d really appreciate it/ Carrie
