July 29, 2010
Newtown Square, Pa., Thursday, July 29, 2010 – John Capasso, president and chief executive officer of CHE’s Continuing Care Management Services Organization and CHESSM (Catholic Health East Senior Services management), is the author of an article that appears in the July/August issue of FutureAge.
In his article, titled “Top Ten Elements of a Well-Run Nursing Home”, Capasso acknowledges that “… legislative, reimbursement, clinical, labor and competitive issues combine to make the job of a nursing home administrator one of the most challenging and stressful occupations.” Based on his many years of experience as a long-term care executive, Capasso wrote this article to provide industry leaders with a quick way to “take the temperature” of their facilities and see if key elements for success are present and in use to the fullest extent possible.
