I have been the D.O.N. of an assisted living facility for the past four years,,,, we are liscensed to provide the most care,,,,, I agree with the posted definitlon of Assisted Living in prior thread.
I'm interested in any facts regarding your facility,,,,,,,
I have 60 residents
From 3 Independent to > half needing assistance with 4 or more of their ADL's
3 CNAs days,,,, 3 CNA's evenings,,,, 2 nocs
1 nurse in day,,,, plus myself mon thru fri
1 nurse in evening
0 thru noc
Administer medications to 57 of these residents, on a daily basis
Contact families,, doctor's any of 28 the residents are currently using
Take orders,, change orders,, deal with doctor's who don't have hospital privledges
And of course,,,, we are not considered a healthcare facility!!! lol
33 residents are on the Florida Assisted Living Medicaid Waiver program and the extra charting and state visits that go with it.
Thanks for any input
