I’m studying and need help with a Health & Medical question to help me learn.
Regulations in Long-Term Care
There are many federal and state regulations when it comes to long-term care.Using the South University Online Library and the Internet, research any four specific regulations related to long-term care and summarize them. Based on the regulations you identified, respond to the following questions:
- What are the benefits and shortcomings of your identified regulations? Which of these shortcomings have an effect on the quality and the cost of health care services? How?
- Do you believe there is a link between regulations and better care? Why or why not?
- Why do you think long-term care services are subjected to so much external control by government agencies? Provide a rationale for your responses.
- How is quality measured in long-term care? Is there only one, or are there several approaches to measure quality? What are they? Who should be given the responsibility to measure quality?
To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Your initial posting should be addressed at 150-300 words. Post your response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned. Respond to at least two posts by the end of the week. Be sure to cite your sources using APA format.
Respond to your peers throughout the unit. Justify your answers with examples, research, and reasoning. Follow up posts need to be submitted by the end of the week of this unit.
Use the following rubric as a guide to complete your discussion responses.
