Nursing Home School And Movies


Hollywood must be fascinated with the nursing profession. Filmmakers have made many great movies about nursing. We enjoy watching them and often get valuable insights into how other people view nurses. These are the 10 movies about nursing that we think are the best, in alphabetical order:




nursing home school and movies



This recent documentary shows five nurses from varied backgrounds who work in different settings, including a prison, a nursing home, and in labor and delivery in a hospital. The film presents a positive image of strong, dedicated and independent nurses.


Masks remain a critical tool to fight the spread of COVID-19, and mask requirements will remain in place in certain high-density settings. All health care settings regulated by the Department of Health and other related state agencies will continue to require masks. Masks will also be required in nursing homes, adult care facilities, correctional facilities, detention centers, homeless shelters, and domestic violence shelters, public transit and transportation hubs, as well as trains, planes and airports in accordance with federal regulations.


New York State will continue to acquire and distribute masks and tests to New Yorkers to ensure those who need them can access them. The state's test stockpile contains 92 million tests. Over 14.2 million tests have been distributed to schools and tests will continue to be distributed as needed. 4.2 tests have been distributed to nursing homes, 2.4 million tests to adult care/congregate facilities, and 4 million tests to counties.


The project will revive a model of care that proved successful in the 1980s: a "teaching" environment where students, academics, and healthcare workers collaborate to improve care for residents. This model provides opportunities for researchers to experiment with new methods of care, and for students to foster careers in nursing homes and geriatrics.


For decades, JHF has advocated for improvements and reform to the holes in the long-term care system, and this project is a landmark in JHF's work. What COVID-19 Exposed in Long-Term Care, the short award-winning documentary JHF produced in 2020, illuminated how a history of lackluster resources and underfunding created a perfect environment for COVID-19 to wreak havoc. JHF commissioned a study by the LeadingAge LTSS Center @ UMass Boston, "The Case for Funding: What is Happening to Pennsylvania's Nursing Homes?," which documents the critical role that nursing homes play in the care of older and vulnerable adults in Pennsylvania. The resulting January 2021 report characterizes issues, including changes in Medicaid reimbursement, that will affect the utilization and financial viability of nursing homes in the state. JHF is supporting a forthcoming second study, The Quality of Care in Nursing Homes by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, which will present policy priorities to redesign current skilled nursing models. The study is convening a Committee on the Quality of Care in Nursing Homes over one year to examine how our nation delivers, regulates, finances, and measures quality of nursing home care.


The Pennsylvania Teaching Nursing Homes project will begin on July 1, 2021 and will run through 2023 in three regions of Pennsylvania (Eastern, Central and Western). The three funding organizations recognized their shared interest in improving the care of nursing home residents and supporting the current and future workforce of skilled nursing homes. The project will draw on the existing resources from the John A. Hartford Foundation's Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation's Full Court Press Senior Residential Living Team, while integrating lessons learned from the Teaching Nursing Home implementation of the 1980s (originally supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation). The pilot will engage key academic partners at The Pennsylvania State University College of Nursing, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing (Penn Nursing) and University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing.


"The pandemic has shown us the multiple ways we have failed to appropriately integrate nursing homes into the continuum of care and the continuum of nursing education," said Terry Fulmer, PhD, RN, FAAN, President, The John A. Hartford Foundation. "This program, which has previously shown positive results without the benefit of the Internet, can now be revisited with these world class nursing schools."


"The pandemic tragedy in nursing homes brought attention to the serious challenges to our long-term care industry that have been building for decades. We are proud to bring together a coalition of funding, academic, and health system partners to test a new approach in our Commonwealth," said Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, President and CEO of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation and Health Careers Futures. "Inspiring examples like Hebrew SeniorLife in Boston have demonstrated the positive impact on patients and staff in a teaching nursing home model. We believe this pilot could help pave the way for better long-term care across the country."

Vincent's 30-year-old Chrysler LeBaron gets hit by a branch felled by his new neighbors' moving van. Maggie Bronstein, a radiology tech in the midst of an acrimonious divorce, and her son Oliver, meet Vincent, who demands payment for the injury. Maggie does her best to provide for Oliver, who is ostracized and bullied at his Catholic school, but is a knowledgeable, friendly boy, warmly welcomed by his new teacher. On his first day at his school, Oliver's phone, wallet, and house keys are stolen by his classmate Robert. Oliver asks Vincent if he can stay at his home until his mother comes home from work. Vincent offers to continue "babysitting" for a fee.


Vincent picks up Oliver daily after school because Maggie often has late shifts. Vincent's ideas of after-school activities involve visits to racetracks and bars. The mismatched pair begin to help each other mature. Vincent teaches Oliver how to defend himself from bullies, resulting in Oliver breaking the nose of a bully who later apologizes and gives back what he stole. Oliver befriends the boy, who introduces himself as Robert. Vincent and Oliver win a high-odds bet on the horses, enabling Vincent to pay off some of his debts. After staff in Sandy's nursing home have told him he is behind on fees and Sandy will be moved, Vincent steals money from Oliver's bank account when his own accounts are overdrawn, and takes it to the racetrack. He gambles this money away hoping for a big win.
