Tilbury Manor Nursing Home Implements Best Practice Guidelines to Improve Resident Care and Create a Healthy Work Environment


As public reporting of quality indicators become a greater focus in the long-term care sector, long-term care (LTC) home leaders and staff have sought new ways to improve resident outcomes.
One of Tilbury Manor is a 75-resident LTC home in the Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration Network, Ontario, Canada.

The "Bill George" is a 20-bed long-term care (LTC) home located in Sioux Lookout, which is one of the most northern LTC home in Ontario. Many residents are of indigenous background and are non-English speaking. The home's goal is to respect and recognize cultural and language diversity through the integration of traditional and modern medical practices.

In 2016, the Bill George began a three-year partnership with RNAO as a LTC Best Practice Spotlight Organization® (LTC-BPSO®) pre-designate and committed to implement five best practice guidelines (BPG) across the entire home focusing on falls, continence, oral health, pressure injuries and pain.

Learn how to recognize the risk factors associated with patient falls and discuss the incidence and morbidity of falls occurring in hospitals.
