Are You Truly 'Looking' at Your Facility?

Occasionally, I will come across an article that simply makes me stop and say 'Wow'.  A recent guest blog on McKnight's page (found here) did just that.   Ken Tack offers some thoughts and observations that I believe we are sometimes hesitant to acknowledge.  I've pondered for about 24 hours trying to decide what I'd like to say about his 'discoveries'.  I've decided to not say much right now, however, I will leave you with this...On this Friday before a holiday week begins, read the article more than once.  Think about what he has written.  Have you really looked at your facility, organization, and staff from a different perspective?  Really?  Don't use it as a critical analysis.  Those of us in long-term care receive enough criticism.  Use your thoughts and positive observations as a way to capitalize and expand on the great aspects of your facility.  As for the negative observations, use those also - to implement needed change.  Thank your staff, communicate with your residents and families, and have a great weekend!
