Good morning, ProviderNation.
We’ve been banging the drum about the awfulness in West, Texas. (And, let us do so again: Give, please. Call Alice Powell at the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services, at (512) 438-4664.) But here’s some really compelling video from the heroes down at the West Rest Haven home. Please to enjoy.
In other news, the Great, Gray Lady has some thoughts on re-hospitalizations, as well as the benefits of mental health therapy for seniors. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) has placed a hold on Marilyn Tavenner’s appointment at CMS until he can get a meeting. And the fine folks at myCNAjobs have created a separate Web site for care workers.
