Deadline Extended to May 17 for the AHCA Nationwide Nursing Facility Staffing Survey

The American Health Care Association (AHCA) is currently conducting a nationwide nursing facility staffing survey to collect 2012 staffing data that will estimate vacancy, retention and turnover rates of nursing facility employees. We strongly encourage you to take the time to complete and return the survey to AHCA by the extended deadline of May 17, 2013.  

The goal of this survey is to provide statistics on retention and turnover for benchmarking and advocacy purposes at the national and state levels, and through LTC Trend Tracker.  LTC Trend Tracker is AHCA’s free member-only quality and performance improvement tool and is available to participating facilities for internal tracking and benchmarking purposes. Please note that individual peer information will not be disclosed to any party, but is made available in aggregate form for benchmarking purposes.  For more information, check out LTC Trend Tracker or the latest staffing report on the AHCA website.  Nursing facilities can participate in AHCA’s Nursing Facility Staffing Survey (2012) in one of two ways:
