Federal involvement in nursing homes began with the passage of the Social Security Act in 1935. there were only public poor houses the majority of people were aged. The legislators did not want these places used to care for the elderly. Social Security Act established a public assistance program for the elderly which proliferated the growth of voluntary and proprietary nursing homes.1950, the Social Security Administration required states participating in the program to establish licensing programs, although the requirement did not specify what the standards or enforcement. 1956 were found to be substandard; staff was poorly trained or untrained and few services were provided. 1965 Medicare and Medicaid federally funded programs for nursing homes were significantly expanded; standards were uniformly put in place for nursing homes participating in the federal program.1970 and 1971 front page:fire killing more than 30 residents in Ohio, food poisoning in a Maryland home killing 36 residents, and numerous horror stories about care atrocitie1972comprehensive welfare reform funded state survey and certification activities in an effort to establish and enforce uniform standards and conditions. emphasis was on the institutional framework rather than on the resident’s care70’s and early 80’s, the Patient Care and Services Survey was born to rectify this problem. controversy over the legitimacy. having a policy was no longer enough, it had to be implemented, reviewed and revised to get results; paper compliance in the form of policy and procedure was nearing its end. Use of paper, in the form of a care plan, was the new gage for insuring resident care.The move from paper to person in determining compliance has been a long road of transitions and lessons learned... 20 years.

No person-centered planning process should ever be initiated without a commitment from the key stakeholders, including service systems, to honor the process, take action and follow through on agreements. Simply saying that we are being person centered does not make us person centered in our care planning efforts. Person centered care is an empathic, common-sense approach to personalize care and de-institutionalize the environment that has been present in nursing facilities for decades. The irony of mandated requirements has driven facilities into a very structured system centered approach to care in order to remain in compliance. At the same time, these mandates are now requiring flexibility and system changes to meet individual preferences by using the MDS 3.0 as the vehicle for change.

Top DeficienciesNot giving care & services to get or keep the highest quality of life possible. Care planning hits:A complete care plan not developed to meet all of a resident's needs, with timetables and actions that can be measured.Not prepared timelyNot created with team, resident, significant others input.Not care plannedwith the care team.Check and updates missing, not timely.Professional services that follow each resident's written care plan not provided.The emphasis on quality of life is designed to give the resident, the human being, the person a say and how they choose to live out their life. Our new mission is PERSON FIRST care planning. Keeping this in mind may lessen the frustrations, anxieties, and regulatory fears we will surely face as we transition into the next generation of care planning.
The components of well thought out care plan remain the same. The methods and formats might be different depending on how your organization decides to get the job done.The format most of us our familiar with is the PGI method. Benefit: We are familiar with it.Negative: It lacks personalizationThere is also the emergence of the “I” format which can be seen the PGI format or the narrative.Give me one benefit, one negative?Later we will explore these options more.
