There’s a new breed of nursing home administrator who has made nursing home sexism her career: the female nursing home’s administrator.
The role, often filled by a woman, is a lucrative one for many, but a growing number of women have taken it upon themselves to teach nursing home administrators how to better deal with gender bias.
While some female nursing homes are making efforts to correct the problem, a growing movement is taking women’s voices and voices of other women into account to change nursing home culture, according to Stephanie J. Ziegler, a professor at the University of Minnesota who studies nursing home management.
“There is a lot of talk about gender in nursing homes, and this is one area that many people are not aware of,” Ziegleman said.
I don’t know if I would call myself a feminist, but I do think there is a way that women can help and help people to understand the dynamics of their nursing home, whether it’s a man or woman.
“In one recent case, a woman in the nursing house in the San Francisco Bay Area was asked to explain how the women in her group could be successful in their work.
A few weeks after the incident, she shared the experience in a Facebook post, describing how her nursing home was “complicated” because of the different culture that existed in her room.
Ziegler said she thinks the experience of being a female administrator can help women understand why nursing homes and others around the country are struggling to be more welcoming to women.
She also said that a number of nursing homes have begun to develop strategies to address gender bias, including ones designed to address what she called the “double standard” of the female-dominated industry.
Women have historically had to deal with sexism because of a lack of support, Ziegley said.
The lack of professional opportunities, which often lead to lack of education, has also created a climate that leads to women to feel isolated and afraid.
She said it’s important for the nursing homes themselves to acknowledge the problem and change how they operate.
In the San Jose area, Ziggler said, there are more women than ever, and she hopes they can use the experiences they’ve gained from working in nursing to help others.”
