Comfort care rounding to improve resident outcomes in long-term care homes
The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre (PRVHC) has been working towards achieving the designation of a Long-Term Care Best Practice Spotlight Organization® (LTC-BPSO) since 2016, in partnership with Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO).
