I enjoy working with patients in nursing homes because they have a rich history of experiences to share. Sometimes they communicate directly and sometimes indirectly. It is very rewarding to provide care for patients in their time of need. In addition, the challenges and complexities of the long term care environment provide much stimulation for all workers in this field. Teamwork is essential and process improvement is a must in the long term care setting. University of Iowa has the tools and motivation to bring best practices to this area of care.
