human resources and staffing crisis at blumberg’s nursing home | HSA 545 Long-Term Care Management | Strayer University

 

Overview

Blumberg’s Nursing Home (BNH) is a 100-bed Medicare and Medicaid  certified facility in suburban Philadelphia, PA. The administrator  recently terminated the facility’s DON, receptionist, and dietary aid  for inappropriate conduct. They had all been involved in purchasing and  using illegal substances on facility grounds. The facility staff and  many of the more lucid residents have found out about the incident.

The charge nurse has been appointed interim DON. The human resource  manager has sent a memo to all staff informing them of a mandatory staff  meeting to discuss BNH’s code of ethics and to provide additional  training on workplace culture. Because federal law requires that there  be at least one registered nurse on duty for a minimum of eight hours a  day, seven days a week, and that the DON must be a registered nurse (RN)  which the interim DON is not—BNH is out of compliance.

Instructions

Write a 4–6 page paper in which you:

  1. Assess the immediate staffing needs at BNH. Prioritize the order  in which BNH should fill the main unstaffed position. Justify your  selection.
  2. Considering the reason behind the termination of the employees,  formulate a human resources policy that addresses inappropriate conduct  in the workplace, the process of reporting inappropriate conduct, and  the consequences of violating the policy. Explain your rationale. 
  3. Per the text, an effective long-term care facility administrator  must have both leadership and management skills. Propose at least one  way the administrator in this case must demonstrate quality leadership  skills and one way the administrator must demonstrate quality management  skills in the aftermath of this crisis so as to improve and maintain  staff and resident morale.
  4. Recommend a strategy for BNH to use the Quality Indicator Survey  to improve administrative practices and ensure future compliance at the  facility. Justify your recommendation.
  5. Use at least three quality academic resources. Note: Wikipedia and other similar websites do not qualify as academic resources.
