Sixth Edition Named a 2013 Doody's Essential Purchase!

A detailed road map of essential knowledge for obtaining licensure and employment as a nursing home administrator, the Seventh Edition of this classic text is updated to reflect the 2014 National Association of Boards of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators (NAB) Domains of Practice. With more than 50 new topics, it comprehensively addresses all new regulations for managing a nursing facility along with a detailed overview of the skills and knowledge required to be a successful administrator. The Seventh Edition responds to the many changes that have recently occurred in the long-term care field. It provides a completely new Minimum Data Set 3.0 (MDS), 2015 Federal Requirements for Electronic Records, the new International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM), new Quality Measures, updated Instructions for Making Data as per the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, the impacts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and several new federal regulations.

The Seventh Edition clearly describes what nursing home managers do, how they think, and how they lead. It breaks down the art of management into its basic tasksóforecasting, planning, organizing, staffing, directing, controlling quality, innovating, and marketingóand examines them in depth. The text pinpoints all of the separate components of nursing home administrationómanagement, human resources, team dynamics, conflict resolution, finance and business, industry laws and regulations, and patient careóand describes how they fit together to form the coordinated activity set required of a successful nursing home administrator. Abundant real-life case studies, chapter objectives, and critical thinking questions greatly enhance learning. Mastering this text will prepare students to takeóand pass with a depth of understandingóthe nationally required NAB examination.
