Let's look at what's right about nursing homes

“Extensive media coverage of the emotional and death tolls that COVID-19 inflicted on nursing homes has intensified concern for preserving the humanity of an often-overlooked population. There is an opportunity to re-examine the policies and practices that shape the nursing home experience and to add quality metrics that capture the aspects of life and community that matter most to residents and their families.”

Carol Podgorski is an associate professor of psychiatry.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “We need to re-examine quality-of-life metrics in nursing homes.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/06/we-need-to-re-examine-quality-of-life-metrics-in-nursing-homes.html)
