Try first to discuss it Hillsboro nursing home defends its quality of care to the elderly Several weeks ago I answered a letter from a woman who was worried about a relative in a nursing home. She complained especially about a "bad smell." I gave her the standard information about how to report a nursing center" concern, completely jumping over the steps of talking with the nursing center personnel first. I received a well-deserved reply from a nursing * home in Hillsboro, Kan., and I want to share it with you. It certainly represents the other side of the story and the points are well-made. Reader's response "I was very disappointed in your response to a reader's concern for her loved one's care. The reader said there was a 'bad smell,' and you assumed there was gross negligence occurring and gave details on how to report the BETTY GIBB Kansas Senior Press Service nursing home to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Sometimes wound infections, cancers, or other physical reasons cause odor. Sometimes it is poor hygiene by an elderly person who will not accept assistance from staff because of pride and a desire to keep her own independence. "A better answer to this reader may have been to first consult with the charge nurse on duty. If a satisfactory answer is not achieved, contact the director of nursing, the administrator, etc. "If the problem is still not solved to your approval, the KD- HE is available to investigate improper resident care. Unfortunately, there are some nursing homes who do struggle with maintaining staff and providing good care.

Please come visit ours, and I'll show you that quality care can be given. It does happen. "Since you are a-representative for senior citizens through your column, please visit some nursing homes in your area (and you're welcome to visit in our area, too). You will find there are some wonderful, caring people in nursing "Sometimes wound infections, cancer or other physical reasons cause odor." Nursing home spokesperson Hillsboro homes delivering quality care to our frail, elderly population. Don't you hope those good people will be in the long-term care industry if you or your loved ones ever move into a nursing home?" Dear Reader: Thanks for writing. I have visited excellent nursing homes in Kansas where I would be pleased to place a mom or sibling. In an attempt to give a quick answer to a complex question, I made the mistake that reporters often do. I gave an oversimplified version of one side. My apologies to excellent nursing facilities and to readers who may have formed an incorrect, negative opinion.
