Falls increase with age and occur more often in skilled nursing than in any other setting. Despite good care, falls appear to be inevitable due to advanced age, frailty, cognitive decline and medical complexity of older nursing home residents. Falls must be taken seriously, though, because they are a leading cause of morbidity, poor quality of life and mortality. Because of this, careful attention must be provided to causes of falls and effective methods to reduce or prevent them.

Because change isn't easy for a lot of employees, leaders should organize their message, make sure it is both adequate and accurate, and then deliver it wrapped not only in a sense of urgency, but with compassion and understanding. Many people don't remember what is being said, but they will remember how they felt by what was shared by another person. Giving employees what they need to know in a tone of enthusiasm will reduce a lot of worries and stress and thereby, minimize resistance.

Sometimes, resistance develops because leadership is too slow with needed information or a little bit of news is provided here or there. This drip, drip, drip of information to a concerned group of employees is breeding grounds for gossip and false information. Instead, a sense of urgency should be articulated to staff identifying what needs to change and why as well as the benefits that should be reaped post change.

Although there may always be a doubting Thomas or two in every company, resistance to changes, big or small, can be skirted by leadership being as open and honest about what is going to take place in the company. A lack of information is nothing but a blank slate upon which employees can come up with their own ideas, worries, gossip and false information. When leaders leave a gap in information, staff will fill it, and rarely with accurate information.

When change produces division among staff, any number of negative outcomes can develop. For one, negative attitudes and behaviors can set the stage for lower morale and a loss in productivity. After a while, a drop in job satisfaction can lead to reduced creativity, motivation and some employees may begin to think about leaving the organization. Chronic division among staff can also lead to physical and emotional stress and burnout. It becomes increasingly difficult to trust coworkers who don't share the same vision for the company's future.

We have been using Collins Learning since before I started with LECOM in 2015. Throughout my last 5 years in the organization in the Human Resources Department, we have continued to expand our use of the service to every newly acquired entity within the LECOM Institute for Successful Aging, including our Skilled Nursing, Personal Care and Independent Living facilities and our Home Care program.

I feel this is an excellent service with courses delivered by Dr. Collins and his team of industry experts in a manner that is manageable, enjoyable and conducive to learning for any level of staff from the front line service worker to a Senior Administrator.

The user interface is also easy enough for a computer illiterate employee to utilize, however robust enough to run any report that has been requested by the Department of Health or Department of Public Welfare. Collins Learning has become the cornerstone of our staff education efforts for both new hires and ongoing employee education.

I would strongly recommend Collins Learning to any Health Care organization looking to provide new employee orientation training and ongoing employee training to its staff.

We're honored when senior care companies choose us for their continuing education and compliance! Let us help you too. Schedule a demo - https://collinslearning.com/request-a-demo/

There are times when change will create division among leaders, management and employees. On one side will be the individuals who are willing to go along with changes and on the other, those who oppose, deny and resist. This sets the inevitable stage for adverse outcomes for both the organization and staff. At the organizational level, resistance can cause serious delays in new developments and improvements that will strengthen the company as a whole. Associated with such delays are expenses and higher costs as the company struggles to effectively respond to new demands and challenges.

Resistance to any changes that companies initiate can be viewed as an employees' attempt to protect themselves from the consequences of change. In other words, it's not change per se, but what follows. Culture change, in particular, can bring about radically different ways of performing various tasks, taking on new or unknown roles, or working within frameworks of new policies and procedures. Resistance in this sense, can be viewed as a form of self-preservation and a strong desire to maintain the status quo. Some employees may simply be cynical and believe the company will fail in their efforts to make serious changes.

Many health care companies, and those in other sectors throughout the economy, find it necessary to revitalize their corporate image, philosophies and overall culture. In doing so, many employees and other shareholders are likely to go along with whatever changes seem necessary for success. Others may not be so agreeable and find change to be something that they don’t understand. They may find change threatening to their position within the company, or fear change in general. Leaders must be able to effectively deal with resistance and create more consensus among their staff to more fully realize impactful changes within their company culture.

A problem hiding in plain sight that has existed for decades if not longer, is the deleterious effects of working in health care on one’s physical, mental, and emotional health. It took a pandemic not seen for 100 years to pull back the cover on the pain, stress and exhaustion experienced by countless healthcare professionals across the nation and around the world. This short article examines factors contributing to diminished mental health and well-being and ways to improve them for professionals working in health care.

For the last 20 years or so, the population in skilled nursing facilities has been getting younger. It was rare to see a 30- or 40-year-old in a traditional home for older adults and seniors. But that has changed. People between the ages of 16 to 64 now make up a sizable group whose characteristics are quite different from traditional residents. Characteristics including more severe mental health conditions, trauma-induced injuries, and neurological disorders will require specialized training and education to better meet unique needs of this population.

Younger and older adults in nursing homes are uniquely different in a wide variety of ways. The majority of younger adults are male, whereas older adults and seniors are mostly female. White people make up the majority of older residents and black and Hispanic make up the younger group. Serious mental illness and psychiatric medications are far more common among younger adults. Younger adults also have greater rates of cerebral palsy, paralysis, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and ventilator use.

Many young adults in skilled nursing have had previous stays in psychiatric hospitals or rehab centers for substance-related conditions. Rates of anxiety, depression and suicidal behaviors are higher than those of older adults and seniors, and may be associated with the possibility of living in a nursing home for the next 20, 30, 40 or more years. All of these characteristics create unique challenges for nursing home staff, who will require specialized training and new approaches to care for younger adults.

Younger adults between the ages of 16 to 64 are very different from older adults and seniors residing in skilled nursing homes. Beside age, their physical, medical, social, psychiatric and substance use issues make them a unique group. Some enter the facility with developmental or intellectual disabilities, trauma-induced hemiplegia and quadriplegia, higher rates and greater severity of psychiatric illnesses and substance-related diagnoses. Others are admitted with chronic neurological conditions like muscular dystrophy, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, ALS, and peripheral vascular disease, to name a few.

Historically, there has been nowhere else to go for younger adults living with conditions like traumatic brain injury, HIV/AIDs, serious injuries due to motor vehicle accidents, drug overdose, hemiplegia, quadriplegia, severe mental illness and neurodegenerative diseases. The significant increase in younger people moving into nursing homes followed the Medicaid Expansion of the Affordable Care Act, which covers nursing home services for younger adults. Although they now have a place to live for a short- or long-term stay, it remains unclear if younger adults benefit from this type of care setting and if their needs can be met.

A new trend not seen before in skilled nursing has been developing over the last two decades. In 2000, young adults between ages 31 and 64 made up 12% of the nursing home population in the United States. In 2010, the number rose to 14% and in 2022 the National Center for Health Statistics reported that almost 17% of nursing home residents and under age 65. It's safe to say that long-term care may no longer be synonymous with old age or geriatric care. Why is this trend occurring?

Leadership is one of the most important topics regardless of occupation, workplace type or industry. While getting the job done, focusing on results and profits are all important, focusing on employees as humans first can enhance the entire workforce and environment. Everyone knows that employees are people, but leaders sometimes don't stop to remember this crucial point. They have lives, family and friends, successes and tragedies, accidents and illnesses - just like leaders do. Adopting some human-centered leadership characteristics seems to be a pretty good bet.

Human-centered leaders know that life is fluid and that everyday can bring with it new challenges, tragedies, successes and more. Staff are exposed to elements in and out of the work arena that can influence their motivation, energy, productivity and overall state of mind. These things matter and human-centered leaders know the importance of flexibility and fluidity.
