Longterm Care

[wm_dropcap color=”blue” shape=”rounded-square” class=””]P[/wm_dropcap]ark Plaza Nursing Home has a multidisciplinary approach to meeting the needs of residents. This consists of an interdisciplinary team which includes a staff of Licensed Nurses, both Vocational and Registered, Certified Nurses Aides, Therapist (Physical, Occupational & Speech), Social Worker, Activities Director, Treatment Nurse, and Medical Director.

Regular assessments are done to determine the needs of each individual resident. These needs are developed into a Plan of Care during regularly scheduled ITTM (Interdisciplinary Team) Meetings. This Plan of Care is formed by the input of the multidisciplinary team, the resident’s physician, the resident and family members. The nursing team is lead by a Director of Nursing and an Assistant Director of Nursing, both with long term care experience. It is their responsibility to oversee the rest of the nursing staff and ensure the Plan of Care is carried out.

The nursing team is available to provide assistance to the resident as needed with activities of daily living, including hygiene, grooming and dressing, and assistance at meal times. A licensed nurse or certified aid administers medications as well as other interventions or treatments ordered by the physician including respiratory therapy and wound care as prescribed.

Wound Care

Chronic wounds and slow healing ulcers are a significant health problem in the United States. Wounds can be caused by a disease process, trauma, or pressure. Screening to find those residents who are at high risk for wounds is the first step for preventive measures. Routine head-to-toe assessments assist the clinical team in prevention and promote healing.

Residents’ physicians and treatment nurses, along with the other clinicians on the multidisciplinary team work with the resident and their families on a treatment plan.

 

IV Therapy

IV therapy may be prescribed for people who are dehydrated, who need antibiotic therapy, who are unable to eat regular food and need a special nutritional formula or for other medical conditions.

Intravenous therapy is a potential admission criteria for a geriatric patient to a skilled nursing facility. With today’s shortened hospital stays, more patients are placed in facilities that offer Skilled Nursing Services. This setting provides also an alternative to hospitalization if a resident requires I.V. therapy. An aging population, federal programs for the elderly and economic health care considerations are factors that contributed to the emergence of this setting. Projections suggest that I.V. therapy will become a more frequent treatment modality.

Enteral Feeding

Enteral Nutrition is an alternative way people can receive the food they need. Also called “tube feeding,” Enteral Nutrition is a mixture of all the needed nutrients. It is thicker than parenteral nutrition and sometimes looks like a milk shake. It is given through a tube in the stomach or small intestine.

Provided by staff and volunteers, hospice offers specialized medical care, addressing all symptoms of a disease with emphasis on controlling a patient’s pain and discomfort.
Hospice does not prolong life nor hasten death. The social, spiritual and emotional impact of the disease on the patient’s family and friends is dealt with. Bereavement and counseling services are offered to families before and after the death of a patient.
