"I have been involved in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facility Administration for over 30 years. I LOVE your website- the info is easy to use, and comprehensive. I typically write all of my own policies, procedures, forms etc. but since finding and joining Providers Web...I have so much more time to Direct our Operations....We have 7 licensed Homes for the Aged, Assisted Living Homes in the state of Michigan - a total of +/- 700 older persons, many with diagnoses of dementia. Just wanted to say thank you for making this information available, at such a reasonable cost!"

Cover for section 4 of the Staff Management Manual. Hiring Cover
This great article covers labor laws and hiring practices within a care facility or nursing home. Included are helpful links to prevent discrimination at the time of hire and during employment.

If a care business employs only one person one hour a week, it is considered an EMPLOYER.  Any employment generating over $50.00 a year usually falls into the category of employer-employee relationship.  Therefore, the labor laws must be observed and employment practices must be ethical.

Without 'Ethical Culture' there is no salvation for humanity.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of training your staff correctly.  The benefits far outweigh the cost by far.  For 20 years I was a licensee and had a multi-level care facility.  When the road department decided via eminent domain to put a road through my care facility, they compared my financial records against over a dozen other care homes.  What they found even shocked me.  I had spent 1/3 more on staffing costs that all of the other facilities!
However, having a better staff sure paid off.  They also found that I had less than a 1% vacancy rate, whereas all the others averaged 10 to 12%.  Not having hardly any vacancies boosted my bottom line whereas I made more money than the other care facilities.
The benefits of properly training your staff include: The Importance of Training Staff in Care Facilities and Home Care Businesses
