A Place Like Home provides the personal perspective of what nursing homes are like from the administrator's side of the desk. The administrator is ultimately responsible for all aspects of life in a nursing home, including health services, nutrition, recreation, social services, and safety. The administrator oversees the financial management of the facility, supervises and manages its staff, and ensures that the facility complies with applicable government regulations. The field of nursing home administration is currently in crisis. Having a better understanding of the constant juggling act that administrator's must perform on a daily basis, might ultimately bring better quality of care to our nation's nursing homes.
