Assignment:Nursing Facilities and Health Care
NURSING FACILITIES and HOME HEALTH CARE
Working on the two facilities listed above, prepare a Microsoft Word document including the following:
Â· Describe the roles and responsibilities of the administration in each department of the nursing facility and home health care.
Â· Identify and list the sources of financing available to consumers for the various programs provided by nursing facilities and home health care. Identify the key public and private sources of reimbursement available. Also discuss the role played by managed care and its impact on long-term care reimbursement.
Â· Describe the various government and private resources available that assist in developing and maintaining quality improvement programs in home health care and nursing facilities. Describe the ways in which quality and cost are controlled in these facilities. Also discuss the ethical aspect of access to care in the facilities, including rationing.
Based on your observations and learning from the two facilities, discuss the changes brought in the long-term care system to make it reach full status as a competition-driven system. You may include the following points in your discussion:
– Discuss the changes made in the control mechanisms (external and internal) to control the management, financing, and quality in the long-term care systems.
– Discuss the changes taking place in long-term care reimbursement system to provide better reimbursement options both to consumers and providers.
– Discuss the changes made in the efforts of providers to accommodate changing magnitude of the day-to-day needs of long-term care consumers.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
