Abstract

We examined the effect on facility and market-level characteristics on staffing levels and turnover rates for direct care staff, and we examined the effect of staff turnover on staffing levels. All three staff types shoed strong dependency on resources, such as reimbursement rates and facility payor mix. Turnover rates significantly reduced staffing levels for RNs and CNAs.

Keywords: nursing homes, nurse staffing, staff turnover
