Abstract (Summary)

The residents of California's nursing homes deserve the best quality of care that can be provided to a population that is diverse in many areas. The purpose of this study was to present an analysis of Title 22, the skilled nursing facility section of the California Code of Regulations. Findings revealed substandard care provided to the vulnerable population of nursing home residents in California, despite a number of federal and state agencies responsible for nursing home regulation. The intention of this policy analysis was to provide a history of nursing homes in the United States, information regarding nursing home staff, information on organizations in support of nursing home reform, California legislation regarding older adults, the impact of Title 22 on nursing home regulation, and the relevance of nursing home regulation to the social work practice. A remarkable amount of progress has been made since the federal and state governments first demonstrated interest in nursing home regulation. However, there remain several suggestions for improvement to the current Code of Regulations regarding skilled nursing facilities.
