A Briefing to Address the Need for Federal Staffing Standards in Nursing Homes

December 09, 2021 - December 09, 2021        

Chronic understaffing has been a serious problem in nursing homes for decades, and has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The research is clear that inadequate staffing contributes to lower quality of care and poor health outcomes for residents, yet no federal staffing standard exists, and only one state requires a minimum research-backed standard of 4.1 hours per resident day. 

Join Consumer Voice, with a panel of experts, Thursday, December 9th at 1:00pm ET for a review of the research and data supporting the need for a federal minimum staffing standard.

Plus, Consumer Voice will provide an overview of a new report documenting staffing standards in each state and analyzing the contrast to research-based standards recommended by medical and healthcare professionals to ensure quality of care.
