What to expect: long-term care and diabetes

What can I expect from my dad’s new long-term care home in terms of managing his diabetes and any complications?

Professional nurses at the long-term care facility will monitor your dad’s blood sugar and administer his medications as ordered by his admitting physician. There is a variety of professional and non-professional staff on duty 24 hours daily who are specifically trained to help with any sort of urgent issue. If your dad is experiencing a medical issue that cannot be handled at the long-term care facility then arrangements will be made to transfer him to the nearest acute care hospital with his or his designated decision-maker’s permission.
