The National College for Nursing and Allied Health (NCIC) is the agency charged with monitoring the health of nursing home residents, a position that includes a wide range of tasks, from nursing home administration to monitoring and monitoring-updating nursing home conditions.
The NCIC is headed by the American Medical Association, the National Academy of Nursing and a consortium of other nursing organizations.
It is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which has been involved in the development of NCIC policy and regulations since 2002.
The nursing home has traditionally relied on a network of voluntary organizations and local health departments to oversee nursing home care and provide quality services.
“The NCIB has become an important player in providing continuity of care to our community through the implementation of state nursing home policy, and its role in the implementation and coordination of national standards for nursing home health,” said David C. Kohn, acting director of the NCIC.
The nursing homes are in a time of transition and are transitioning to an expanded range of services and equipment, such as a new suite of electronic health records, more frequent monitoring of health status, and a broader range of programs to improve the care of the residents, according to a press release from the NCIB.
Many nursing homes have adopted more innovative approaches to their nursing home environment, including offering a full-time nursing home nurse assistant program and requiring nursing home employees to complete additional training, according the NCI.
In addition to the NCIG, the nursing home includes other agencies, such the NCNAP, the NCMBA, the Department for Healthcare Administration, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
The NCI and NCIC have been involved with several nursing home safety initiatives.
For example, the NHANES data collection program has produced a number of national, state, and county-level reports, which have been used by the nursing homes to monitor nursing home practices.
And in 2016, the American Hospital Association, a trade group for hospitals, issued a guide to managing the use of telemedicine, including monitoring the use and performance of telehealth services.
In a statement, the NASSCOM stated that “the NASSCO [National Association of Social Workers] is committed to developing and supporting standards for the health and welfare of our workforce that will enable the nation’s nursing homes and care facilities to meet the needs of their residents.”
The NASSCM has been a major voice in nursing home nursing homes as the organization has been an early adopter of telecare technologies and has developed protocols to ensure safe, appropriate, and efficient use of such technologies, the statement added.
The NASM also has established an independent task force to review the role of nursing homes in the care and monitoring of the elderly.
In its statement, NASSCom noted that it is working with other agencies to address the nursing service profession’s role in nursing homes.
“We are committed to ensuring that the nursing profession’s responsibilities for the elderly are aligned with those of other sectors, such that these are not only important to their health and well-being, but are also aligned with the health needs of all people,” NASSComa stated.
