Topic 1: “Healthcare, Senior Living, Quality
Thanks for journeying over and joining our blogging on healthcare: Senior Living
This blog originated from my heart as a very compassionate Healthcare Manager with over 35 years of experience in senior living settings and a daughter who’s heart is her mother; currently residing in a senior living setting. I have become compelled to journey towards one common goal of attaining “Quality ” in healthcare for every person regardless of your unique connection to senior living. As a healthcare worker I am a devoted compassionate individual with a vision of words being spoken uniquelee based on real life experiences for process improvement to attain “Quality-the degree of excellence that is “safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable”.
Merriam Webster dictionary defines quality as “degree of excellence”.
According to health.gov healthcare “quality” is a broad term that encompasses many aspects of patient care. Quality health care is care that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable.
The World Health Organization (WHO) definition of “Quality” of care is the degree to which health services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes. WHO also notes care is care that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable.
As you begin to write your experience, speak from your heart for improvement and list (preference) how you are connected to Senior living.
Example: HW- Healthcare worker C-Customer – FR- Friend P- Provider Co- Coalition P- Political rep.
Briefly explain what “quality” is to you and take the time to see others perspective. Sometimes its not what it seems. I did say sometimes😊
