Raising the Bar in Nursing Homes
Ohio is raising the bar for quality long-term care, beginning with nursing homes, through a Nursing Home Quality Improvement Initiative. At the center of this effort is the resident who lives in a nursing home for any length of time – whether they are elders or people with disabling conditions. Person centered care is becoming a way of life in Ohio. This means that we are creating environments where people can live and work with meaning and purpose. It involves residents, their family and friends, and the caregivers who work every day to support the resident’s preferences and needs. Everyone engaging together makes the place a home.
