Nursing Home and Extended Care

  • Theodore Reiff

Abstract

The nursing home patient admitted today may be in the institution and under the physician’s care for a few days, a month, a year, or ten years. Extended care is a special challenge, and the physician can contribute greatly to his patient’s well being and health, with a unique opportunity for practicing the philosophy of providing continuing care.
