Risk Management

Many older patients are in and out of the hospital and reside in long-term care facilities because they can no longer take care of themselves. While a specialized facility can be a great place for someone who needs help with day to day functions, more often than not, a patient is not under complete surveillance 100% of the time. Just like anywhere else, accidents can happen in long-term care facilities as well, even when the proper precautions are taken. For some updates on risk management techniques, visit us at Annals of Long-Term Care.
