Florida is known far and wide for its balmy weather, beautiful beaches and friendly local population. What may be less well known is the state’s high priority of senior care and its strong oversight of nursing homes. The process of selecting a nursing home for a loved one is an emotional journey that can seem overwhelming and confusing. Careful research and attention to detail, however, can ensure that any family's aging loved one is well cared for in a comfortable and safe nursing facility.
Nursing homes differ from assisted living facilities and senior living communities in that they are specifically designed for providing dignified living services for seniors who are unable to care for themselves. As implied by the title "nursing home," these facilities are staffed with professional medical personnel who are able to provide medical services along with household tasks such as laundry and cleaning services. Nursing home staff includes registered nurses, certified nursing assistants and physicians, all of whom are qualified to care for each resident based upon his or her specific care plan.
Florida nursing homes are regulated and monitored by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). The AHCA ensures that they each maintain Federal and state standards of care, cleanliness and safety for both residents and staff members. According to the white paper on the subject provided by the AHCA, unannounced certification and licensure inspections are routinely performed by qualified agency personnel who are required to participate in annual continuing education as well as pass a federal Surveyor Minimum Qualification Test (SMQT). Quarterly surveys are performed as well as unannounced visits for the purposes of investigating complaints about regulation violations. The quality of life and dignity of each individual resident of Florida nursing homes are the highest priorities of the AHCA with regards to senior citizens.
