Congratulations to the Jewish Home Assisted Living: They are the first Assisted Living Center to be approved by the State to implement an IV Therapy Program
An excerpt of Barbara Goldman's letter to the Jewish Home Assisted Living:
"Since its inception, the licensure of Assisted Living Residences (ALRs) Assisted Living Programs (ALPs) and Comprehensive Personal Care Homes (CPCHs), collectively, Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs), regulated under N.J.A.C. 8:36, et. seq., has been a strong focus of the the Department. The concepts of "aging in place in one's home" and independence, dignity and self-determination for residents of ALFs, are the underpinnings of the delivery of health care services in this setting. The implementation of these concepts into every day practice is supported by the Department."
"Specifically, providing short term IV Therapy, when appropriately ordered, to the residents of the licensed community for the administration of antibiotic medications and for the purpose of hydration of a resident, only, is indicative of a practice working to enhance quality of care and quality of life of assisted living residents. By enabling residents to remain in the privacy of their apartment while receiving short term IV therapy, contributes to the well-being, both emotionally and physically."
From all of us at Care, congratulations, Jewish Home Assisted Living for all of your hard work!
