Program Authorization: Act 230 of 1979; Act 390 of 1991

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration and General Support Program of New Orleans Home and Rehabilitation Center is to maintain supportive services and physical resources necessary to facilitate resident care at a level consistent with all required federal and state certification, licensing, accreditation, and other regulatory body standards.

The goal of the Administration and General Support Program is to provide leadership, program support, and program development, and to maximize the resources of the facility and maintain records in accordance with recognized accounting methods.

The Administration and General Support Program is responsible for the purchase of supplies and services necessary to feed, house, and provide the amenities necessary for the comfort of the residents. This program is also responsible for the financial operation of the facility, the preparation of mandated reports to the various controlling agencies, and the safekeeping of resident’s funds. The administration program is responsible for timely and accurately billing charges for services provided and the timely collection of monies due. This program ensures that equipment that is needed and used in the care of the residents is in safe working order and that the grounds and buildings are kept clean and in good repair at all times.
