Description: This is a comprehensive resource that defines the scope of responsibilities for nursing home administrators. The author divides the administrator's scope of responsibility into four dimensions of resident care: physical, social, mental, and spiritual.
Purpose: The primary focus of this book is on providing a comprehensive source on how to effectively manage a skilled nursing facility as well as how to improve the skills of prospective and currently employed nursing home administrators to facilitate the delivery of high quality and cost effective care. These objectives are met by the author and serve a much needed resource to a demanding field.
Audience: This is a resource for students of healthcare administration as well as currently employed nursing home administrators. Dr. Singh, a noted author in long term care administration, has more than 10 years experience publishing in long term care journals and books.
Features: The book covers important topics in long term care such as nursing home systems, legal and regulatory issues, federal reimbursement, clinical organization, and effective management strategies. Dr. Singh emphasizes both internal and external factors that influence nursing home care. The extensive glossary and references provide additional resources for the reader.
Assessment: This comprehensive work provides readers with a resource to better manage the demanding work force environment of long term care. While this book is complex, it will likely be an ongoing resource for long term care administrators.
