Quality Assurance for Long Term Care provides information and essential forms to develop comprehensive long term care facility programs for Restraint Reduction, Fall Prevention, Pain Care Management, Unnecessary Medications, Pressure Ulcer Prevention, and Urinary Incontinence Management.

Guidelines are given for nursing policy and procedure, nursing documentation, nursing assessment, and nursing care plans. Numerous forms are included for quality assurance audits, risk assessment, and monitoring.

All of the information is based on the latest regulations, guidelines, and updates from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, CMS. Terminology is based on MDS 3.0 language and nursing diagnosis definitions and classifications as outlined by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association, NANDA. The nursing care plan format follows the care plan standards from the American Nurses Association.

Members of the Nursing, MDS, Quality Assurance, Restorative Nursing, and Staff Education departments will find this manual helpful for improving existing programs or developing new programs.

Care plans and forms have been updated to ensure compliance with the change to MDS 3.0 and with all of the federal regulations and guidelines updated during the past year.

All of the forms and care plans in the book are included on the CD so they can be saved to a computer whenever needed. By adding or deleting entries, the forms and care plans can be made resident specific.
