Azusa is a city in Los Angeles County, California. The name Azusa, originates from the original settlers, the Tongva, who called the area "Asuksagna." The city hosts two universities, Azusa Pacific University, a private Christian school, and Dhammakaya Open University, a private Buddhist school. In 2010, the census counted Azusa's population at 46,361. Azusa has no Skilled Nursing Facilities, but you can search this website for one convenient to you.
In addition to the fact that the elderly are more susceptible to deadly illnesses and injuries, many nursing homes neglect their residents, putting them at an even higher risk for accidents and death. Falls are particularly common and contribute to the large statistic of patients who are injured in nursing homes. Because nearly all of these injuries are preventable through adequate staffing, it is unacceptable that any resident have to suffer the pain of a broken bone or fracture.
Pressure sores, also known as decubitus ulcers or bed sores, are also preventable. Just one example of a prevention technique is repositioning the patient, to relieve pressure on specific areas of the body. However, if possible, it is even more beneficial to encourage the resident to maintain mobility and muscle strength, so that he or she does not have to rely on a caregiver for repositioning. The prevention of pressure sores also requires an adequate and qualified nursing staff.
