Recognizing Excellence
It is a cardinal fact that if one wishes to perpetuate any given behavior, then that behavior needs to be rewarded. A simple “thank you” or “you made a difference in the care of me or my loved one” from a family or resident is always welcome for those of us in the post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) continuum. Even better, a mention by a meaningful person in the facility (a colleague, the director of nurses, the administrator, or others) that you made a great diagnosis, started a meaningful program, or touched the life of a resident in a positive way makes the week better and brings a smile to your face.

PALTC Steps Up Strategies to Attract Nurses
Enrollment in nursing schools is up as more people — men and women alike — see this as an exciting field where they can have a rewarding career and job security. However, while nursing schools are attracting more students, too few of their graduates are choosing to practice in post-acute and long-term care (PALTC). As a result, a perfect storm i s brewing: a rapidly growing over-65 population, a large number of nurses nearing retirement age, and not enough students choosing this specialty. PALTC communities and their team leaders are scrambling to find creative ways to attract more nurses.

Shared Learning for Better Outcomes
“Caring Collaborative” is more than the catchy title of our regular editors’ column for Caring for the Ages — it is meant to be a guide for our work. Today’s post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) environment requires a caring collaborative among a range of disciplines to be successful. Thi s is so very different than the past PALTC environment with its fee-for-service, acute care, siloed focus, which was typically run by community physicians who worked independent of other disciplines.
