GERO342 – Case Study 2

GERO342 – Case Study 2

The Scenario

Iroquois Nursing Home Inc. (Iroquois Skilled Nursing Facility) in Jamesville, NY has been identified by Medicare as a “special focus facility” and is in danger of losing its certification status with CMS. You have been hired as a consultant to evaluate and improve this facility. Based on what you have learned about long term care services, policies and regulations, you are to prepare a brief report that provides recommendations for improvement.

Use the web to find pertinent information with which to guide your recommendations. Some important resources may include:

  • Nursing Home Compare: https://www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare/search.html
  • State of New York Nursing Home Regulations: https://govt.westlaw.com/nycrr/Document/I4fe5b937cd1711dda432a117e6e0f345?viewType=FullText&originationContext=documenttoc&transitionType=CategoryPageItem&contextData=(sc.Default)
  • CMS.gov – Nursing Homes: https://www.cms.gov/medicare/provider-enrollment-and-certification/certificationandcomplianc/nhs.html
  • Federal Nursing Home Regulations and State Laws: http://www.nursinghomealert.com/federal-nursing-home-regulations-and-state-laws
  • Facility website (http://www.sagecrestrehabilitation.com/). IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT contact the site directly. This is a learning exercise. Since you are not actual consultants, contacting the facility directly would be inappropriate.

In your report, include the following:

  • Summary of identified problems
  • Relevant policy that guides nursing home practice
  • Prioritized list of recommendations
  • Suggested action plan for implementing changes

Your report should be 3-4 pages in length, not including title page or references. The paper should be double-spaced with 1” margins on all sides. Format, in-text citations and references should adhere to APA format. For assistance with APA format, visit the UMUC Library website at http://www.umuc.edu/library/citationguides.html

Submit your completed case study to the Assignments tab by no later than 11:59PM ET on the due date. Late assignments will not be accepted without prior permission from the instructor.
