NJAPA SALARY Survey 2002

It has been noted that many nursing homes cite low staffing, especially on the weekends. This also applies to the Activity Department. Weekend activities have been a focus of family members and of course the residents themselves, stating that there are not enough activities on the weekends. Usually there is only one staff person to provide activities for the entire resident population. Activity Directors struggle with this ever enduring problem.

In a recent survey finding
COMMENTS: Not enough activity being offered to meet the residents’ needs. Supplies not being utilized by the staff (other than activity staff). Complaints by family and residents. Individual resident’s assessments, no team effort to meet low-functioning residents’ needs. The need for in-servicing all staff on how to implement activities for one to one. Interventions to reduce anxiety and stress of the low-functioning resident. – These are only a few examples of the citations that were received.
In conclusion, be aware of what a surveyor will now be focusing on – Weekend Activities.
