Management of Skilled Nursing Facilities
Management of skilled nursing facilities involves overseeing the day-to-day operations of the facility to ensure that it provides high-quality care to residents. Skilled nursing facilities provide long-term care services to individuals who require specialized medical care and assistance with daily living activities. EmLucy is a facility management system that provides management with tools to optimize the operation of their facility.
The responsibilities of skilled nursing facility management include:
Staffing: Ensuring that the facility is adequately staffed with skilled and qualified healthcare professionals, including registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing assistants.
Quality of Care: Ensuring that the facility is providing high-quality care to residents, meeting or exceeding regulatory requirements, and implementing best practices in care delivery.
Financial Management: Managing the facility's finances, including budgeting, billing, and reimbursement from payers such as Medicare and Medicaid.
Compliance: Ensuring that the facility is in compliance with federal and state regulations, including licensure requirements, healthcare laws, and safety standards.
Resident Services: Ensuring that residents receive appropriate medical, social, and recreational services, and that their needs and preferences are being met.
Facility Maintenance: Ensuring that the physical plant and equipment are maintained in good condition and that any necessary repairs or upgrades are made in a timely manner.
