ALL FDITIDNS Thf Arizona Republic Mfty 9, County Finds Nui'se H6me Care Better Sy ROBERt 3. EARLY The number of nursing home beds for persons needing skilled medical attention has tripled in Maricopa County during the past year, county health officials said yesterday. Dr. S. F. Farnsworth, county health director, said a survey completed yesterday showed there are 674 skilled nursing home beds available now. By July 1 another 169 beds will become available when construction of two more nursing homes is completed. Skilled nursing homes are those with bedfast patients needing medical attention. IN ADDITION, there are 779 beds available in 27 sheltered care homes, he said. Sheltered care beds are for those persona who are ambulatory and need no special medical care. Farnsworth said county and state health departments have jointly made the survey and determined to which category each nursing home in the county belongs, either a skilled care or a sheltered care. The categories of nursing homes were established late last year by the State Health Department when it adopted regulations governing construction and operation of these homes. Last month Maricopa County adopted the same regulations. The regulations aimed at upgrading nursing home care stemmed from a series of stories in The Arizona Republic nearly two years ago pointing out the need for improved and expanded nursing home facilities in the county. FARNSWORTH said the new survey shows "there are more skilled nursing beds than we had before and the level of care has improved remarkably. "Because of the cooperation we have been getting from the nursing home operators the number of skilled beds has 1 increased about three times over the number of beds we had for comparable care a year ago. "Practically every single home In the county has been very cooperative in complying with the requirements of the new regulations." Only two homes in the county have not attempted to meet the minimum requirements of the code, Farnsworth said. These homes have gone out of the nursing home business and into the boarding home profession, he added. ONE OF the primary changes brought about by the new regulations is the required employment of registered and licensed practical nurses. The survey shows that 9 registered and 13 licensed practical nurses already have been added to existing nursing homes staffs. 1 Three-month provisional li- 1 censes will be issued to homes which must upgrade nursing services, environmental sanitation and' safety and fire regulations to meet minimum requirements of the code, Farnsworth said. « In homes where structural or major changes in the kitchens are required the homes have been given one year and in certain cases even longer to meet code requirements, the director said.
