Administrator/Policy Maker

As a Health Care Administrator, whether it is in residential care, a home support setting or in a hospital unit, you may be required to establish and monitor daily mouth care programming to support those who are dependent on others to meet daily personal care needs.  You will find Brushing Up resources to help you set up protocols for Oral Care Assessments and Care Planning, establish Oral Care Toolkits, as well as many resources to support Health Educators and Care Providers in meeting the mouth care needs of your residents, clients or patients.


If you are in Nova Scotia, see Section 6.6 of the Long Term Care Program Requirements: Nursing Homes and Residential Care Facilities to more fully understand provincial standards to ensure that “Residents’ oral health is optimized through an effective mouth care regime”.
