Jack Rowe, Terry Fulmer and Chris Koller author an NAM Commentary on the way forward for nursing homes in the wake of Covid-19

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Jack Rowe, Terry Fulmer and Christopher Koller have a new "NAM Perspectives" commentary out in the wake of Covid-19 about reimagining nursing homes. It appears on the National Academy of Medicine website.
In this call for nursing homes to match patients with appropriate care models, increase training and payment for staff, and investigate better financing models, the authors argue that facilities are not one-size-fits-all. Individuals with different needs should be directed to more specialized care, reducing crowding and improving outcomes, for example. The authors propose a path forward with first steps that will ensure residents of nursing homes receive effective and efficient care.
