Keynote Speaker, President of Stackpole & Associates, and Co-Host of the podcast, The Medical Travel ShowIrving Stackpole, joined us to discuss how Long Term Care, especially skilled nursing facilities, is the scene of the collision of money, politics and denial.  With the loss of direct care workforce and closures of nursing centers, there’s a “fatal contraction” of supply in long term care.  Irving began this large discussion about how to wade through the mess and find the solutions.
