How You Can Help Improve Nursing Home Care
Are you ready for a new career that gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others? A Bachelor Degree of Science in Health Care Administration could be a great stepping stone. Attaining your Health Care Administration degree could put you on the path to a career in a hospital, clinic, nursing home, long-term care facility, and more.
When you work as a health care administrator, the work you do and the decisions you make on a daily basis can have a positive, long-lasting impact on the healthcare facilities and the industry as a whole.
What You Might Do as a Health Care Administrator
You would work on the business side of a medical facility. As a member of a healthcare team, you'd assist with day-to-day operations to ensure that a facility is running as efficiently and smoothly as possible. You might work in Finance or Human Resources. Whatever department you're in, you'll need to make sure Federal and State regulations are followed when it comes to patient care and information privacy.
Make a Positive Change in Nursing Home Care
Sometimes people view nursing homes and long-term care facilities unfavorably. But if you were part of the solution, maybe you could help fix the problem! You could make certain that residents are always treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
One reason nursing homes get a bad rap is that there often isn’t enough staff to properly care for residents. Many nursing homes in the United States are understaffed and provide inadequate care to their patients.1 They could use a dedicated and passionate professional like you who really wants to make a difference.
But could you really have a positive impact at a nursing home?
With the right training you could!
You would need to understand how great healthcare facilities run and develop an important knowledge base that could help you make a difference, such as:
- Healthcare delivery systems
- Healthcare economics
- HIPAA and Electronic Medical Records
- State and Federal regulations
- Human Resource development
- Conflict resolution
- Business law and ethics
With knowledge as your tool, you could be involved in the fair and proper treatment of nursing home patients and residents.
Your degree in Health Care Administration could help you gain the experience and knowledge you'll need to improve a nursing home's policies and influence change in the industry as a whole.
