What an old folks home should be
2/1/2019, 6 a.m.
An old folks home should be a place where the comfort, safety and welfare of its residents is maintained.
It should only hire employees who have the empathy to be kind and helpful. It should have enough well-trained and supervised nurses to care for all the residents when they call for help.
It should have only employees who follow the correct usage of rubber gloves. It should schedule enough employees to care for the residents seven days a week. It should schedule enough employees to clean all public areas before the residents rise every morning.
It should have only authorized food handlers preparing and protecting the food. No one should be allowed in the kitchen except authorized personnel. It should have doors to the kitchen that automatically open for entrance and exit.
It should be a place free from all types of abuse.
