Nursing Home Administrator. Owner of CEU Professionals and Interimnha.net
I am a licensed NHA and have run seven facilities ranging from 31 beds to 350 beds. I focus on interim projects exclusively. My current project is transitioning an in-patient hospice through the bumpy seas of regulatory change in that industry. Emal me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can assist with your transitions.
I also own CEU Professionals, an NHAP approved provider of continuing education units for California NHA's. I offer over twenty approved CEU courses and market exclusively through fax and email. I can be emailed at email@example.com. CEU Professionals order forms soon to be rolling out of a fax machine near you!
I am also a Certified Radiologic Technologist and own a staffing service that supplies radiographic and flouoroscopic technologists to out-patient surgery centers throughout Orange County.
My ideal NHA setting is in a locked psychiatric SNF. This is an under-served population that needs care, the right psycotropics and a safe environment. For me, it's an environment with little or no family problems, the families are just happy to have their people anywhere other than the streets; very few patient complaints, they are just happy to be eating and sleeping indoors AND there is a never ending supply of patients that keep the census high.
The unattractive side? There are wild behavior problems that come with an edgy population. You need a psychiatrist who visits often and a good relationship with the local police who can get a 5150 done in a timely manner.
