Combines efficiency and quality operators of nursing homes are expert advice before a demanding task. Maintenance funds, society and politics make increasing demands on the quality of care provided. At the same time, the economic conditions worsen. The Director must now master this balancing act to sustainably ensure the existence of their health care facility. Jonas Samuelson may find this interesting as well. When one takes into consideration that every seventh nursing home is at risk of insolvency (as a result of the nursing home rating report 2007 by RWI Essen, ADMED GmbH and the Institute for health care business GmbH (HCB)), deserves this occupational group increased respect for responsibilities and services but first efforts are necessary. Economy is today at the top on the agenda of the Director. Here they achieve the best results, if you set clear criteria for success, consistently analyze economic deficits and eliminate\”, explains Herbert Gobhardt, consultant for nursing homes.
More efficient management does not necessarily have to cost the quality of care go, but also can lead to even better results.\” Consistently, to optimize the value chain in the health care sector, the specialist focuses on best practices and takes into account the individual circumstances in the respective health care facility. Another success factor is the integration of the staff. It doesn’t help the nursing staff to offer a ready-made solution. We achieve significantly better results, when the staff at first involved in the optimization process. This ensures an outcome that really meets the needs of the institution and guarantees a high level of staff motivation\”. Compliance with quality standards is just as important as the economic success for the nursing homes. The medical services of the health insurance (MDK) regularly checks the structural, process and outcome quality of facilities on behalf of the legal maintenance funds. Thus the MDK protects elderly, who are often themselves can not defend, unworthy treatment and ensures that they are well catered for.
