Long Term Care Questions Answered by Tammy Royal »
Section: Long Term Care
Q:  If a person has concerns about the way a family member in long-term care is being treated by staff, what is the best way to voice those concerns without being known as \"that\" person? I don\'t want the staff to think of me negatively, but I do have some things I\'d like to address.
A:  The best way to voice concerns which is important, is to direct your concerns to the Director of Nursing and/or the Administrator. The concerns will then be addressed with the proper staff member, by the facilities grievance policy which is an internal form that will allow your concerns to be addressed in a discreet manner. It is always important to address any concerns with management so that those concerns can be addressed before they become bigger problems. If you feel your concerns are not addressed properly, each nursing home has an assigned ombudsman ,as she or he serves as the resident advocate.  Each nursing home is mandated by the  state.  The numbers for contacting these parties are posted in the nursing home in a location that is easily obtained.   Each of these parties will investigate your concerns as you will remain anonymous, and after investigation, you will be contacted regarding your concerns with the findings and the way your concerns will be addressed. Thanks for your question!

Q:  How long will a patient have to stay in long term care?
A:  A person can enter a LTC facility for Short Term Rehab, Long Term Care or Respite Care. The length of stay can vary depending upon the needs of the person. Short Term Rehab is for a person who no longer needs acute hospital care but is unable to return home and care for themselves. Short Term Rehab is typically 20 to 100 days for OT, ST or PT Therapies like recovery from surgery. LTC assist the person with normal daily activity such as medications, meals, bathing, etc. The stay for LTC would depend on the individuals need and usually the LTC facility becomes their home. Respite Care is short term and provides relief for family or caregivers taking care of someone at home. It is usually a weekend or 1 to 2 weeks. Medicare, Medicaid or Private Insurance all can be available to help pay for for Short or Long Term Care.
