REMINDER: Complete the 2012 AHCA Nursing Facility Staffing Survey

The American Health Care Association (AHCA) continues to request participation in a nationwide nursing facility staffing survey to collect 2012 staffing data that will be used to estimate vacancy, retention and turnover rates of nursing facility employees. If you have not yet done so, please take time to complete and return the survey to AHCA by Friday, May 31, 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.  Through LTC Trend Tracker - AHCA’s free member-only quality and performance improvement tool, the survey findings can be made 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, please 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:

  1. Individual facilities may download the survey in PDF format or Excel format from AHCA's website, After completion, surveys should be mailed to AHCA 2012 Nursing Facility Staffing Survey, American Health Care Association, 1201 L Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20005, or scan and email the survey to research@ahca.org, or fax the completed survey to 202.454.1299.
