The following is an alert for the Q3 2022 staffing report. Download data at NursingHome411 and check out our interactive staffing dashboard.
March 9, 2023 – A nursing home administrator is responsible for overseeing their facility, including clinical and administrative affairs, to ensure that resident care needs are met. According to federal law, nursing homes must be administered “effectively and efficiently to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each resident.”
In a new staffing report by The Long Term Care Community Coalition, we find that nursing home administrators are providing less time in their facilities compared to before the COVID-19 pandemic. According to payroll-based journal data, nursing home administrators provided an average of 4.7 minutes per resident day (total of 6.17 hours per day) in the third quarter of 2022. This is a 20% decline from the 5.9-minute per resident day (total of 8.44 hours per day) in Q3 2019.
LTCCC’s new staffing report contains Q3 2022 data on nurse staff (RN, LPN, CNA, etc.) and non-nurse staff (Admin, Medical Director, Dietician, etc.) for every U.S. nursing home (in compliance with mandatory reporting requirements).
Visit the NursingHome411 staffing page for user-friendly data on nursing homes in your community or state, including nurse staff, non-nurse staff, contract workers, turnover rates, weekend staffing levels, staffing ratings, and state rankings (plus: an interactive staffing dashboard!). We hope this report can help the public, media, and policymakers identify and assess the extent to which nursing homes in their communities provide sufficient staffing to meet basic clinical and quality of life needs.
