When patients are admitted to long term care facilities, it's crucial to conduct a health screening and identify a preventative patient health plan in order to preserve their well-being. What are some of the areas to pay particular attention to when screening a new patient at a long term care facility? What is the role of the family in creating a health maintenance plan? How might an individualized health maintenance plan differ from standard guidelines? Dr. Susan Levy, vice president of medical affairs and medical director at Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital in Baltimore, discusses these and other questions about health maintenance with host Dr. Eric Tangalos.
