Quality of Life



This Quality of Life Regulations Workbook is based on the OBRA '87 Nursing Home Reform Law. Both deficient and commonly acceptable tag F240 compliance decisions are examined and compared to the decisions made in a culture changed environment.

Then, using the practical self-examination exercises throughout this workbook, participants begin to re-think common practices in an empathetic, person-centered care model. Many commonly accepted practices, when viewed in this light, come up short when measured against the interpretive guidance of F240 Quality of Life: "...creating and sustaining an environment that humanizes and individualizes each resident."

The Interpretive Guidance sums it up: "Compliance decisions are driven by the quality of life of each resident." Quality of life is equal to quality of care.
