State Pushes for Tighter Regulations on Nursing Homes

Governor John Kasich is pushing for tighter regulations on nursing homes in Ohio. This push comes as a result of inconsistent levels of quality care across Ohio's 929 nursing home facilities. Governor Kasich's plan to improve the quality of care in these facilities is designed to offer incentives to facilities that offer higher levels of care.

Would new technology help prevent bedsores?

One of the most common conditions for patients who are immobile or otherwise bedridden is bedsores (also known as "pressure ulcers" or "decubitus ulcers"). Bedsores generally develop along bony areas of the body, such as the hips or tailbone, because immobile patients are constantly putting weight or pressure on that part of their body. This condition is easily preventable by simply rotating the patient to change their position or using a medical air mattress, which inflates and deflates intermittently to change a patient's pressure points. Unfortunately, even though bedsores are easily preventable, this condition is not uncommon for many patients in hospitals and nursing homes.
