LTC: Directors Nursing / Assistant

Long Term Care Directors Nursing / Assistant (DON/ADON) is the place for long term care directors of nursing and assistant directors of nursing to discuss the life of the LTC DON/ADON. LTC nursing poses unique challenges: how to provide quality medical care to an often fragile population in what is now their home. So, how do you do it?
