After visiting a few nursing facilities and seeing that the environment was more factory like, really got me thinking about the culture change movement. Most of the Certified Nursing Assistants I have talked to have never even heard of culture change or what it consists of
for that matter. What is even more shocking is the the administrators haven't hear of this either. Those who have feel that changes to any existing system is too difficult and they carry with them a certain level of resistance.
Is it a legitimate effort to make care more homelike and person centered, or is just a fad that will pass us by? Transforming the long-term care medical model to one that nurtures the human spirit, as well as meeting medical needs isn't something that should be ignored.
In the past few years there has been quite a buzz throughout the long term care industry about creating culture change in nursing homes. However, many Certified Nursing assistants I have talked to have never heard of this.
