From Nursing Homes to Rehabilitation Centers:
What Every Person Needs to Know
Published December 2017
The population of the United States is aging. Approximately 15,000 nursing homes/rehabilitation facilities now exist across the nation. An elder citizen has a one-in-four chance of spending at least some time in one of these facilities. Furthermore, anyone over twenty-one years old may find themselves in one when needing short-term rehabilitation after a serious medical occurrence.
Nursing homes represent billions of dollars in potential profits reimbursed by government and insurance programs, a fact that has attracted individual owners and investor-backed corporations eager for financial gain. This drive for earnings often leads to shorthanded and poorly trained staff, which negatively impacts patient care.
An inside glimpse into the truth about the day to day workings of these facilities. Along with revealing stories based on hands-on experiences, the author gives us a feeling of what it means to be in the trenches which affects what happens to your loved ones, both clinically and practically.
This insightful examination of the limitations of the current nursing-home environment, Nursing Homes to Rehabilitation Centers: What Every Person Needs to Know provides the
information you need to become a more effective advocate and informed health-care consumer—for yourself and for your aging family members.
