55 - Preserving Residents' Dignity VIDEO
Preserving Residents' Dignity is devoted specifically to the issue of resident dignity -- the most cited quality-of-life issue in study after study of resident attitudes and behaviors.
During this 17-minute video staff members will:
1. learn what dignity means to a resident living in a long term care facility
2. hear how residents feel about practices and procedures that are common in many facilities
3. identify the key factors which can either maintain or destroy a resident's dignity
4. uncover staff behaviors which support a resident's need for dignity while still accomplishing the care task at hand.
