We Need You!!! Complete the AHCA Nursing Facility Staffing Survey

The American Health Care Association (AHCA) is conducting a nationwide nursing facility survey, which will collect 2011 staffing data that will be used to estimate retention and turnover rates of nursing facility employees. Please take the time to complete and return this important survey to AHCA by March 30, 2012.

The goal of this survey is to provide statistics on retention and turnover for benchmarking and advocacy purposes. If the response rate for each state is sufficient, AHCA will be able to generate these statistics on a state level basis. Data for benchmarking purposes will also be available through LTC Trend Tracker - AHCA’s free member-only quality and performance improvement tool.  The results from last year’s Nursing Facility Staffing Survey (2010) are available on the AHCA website.  Please note that individual results will not be disclosed to any party.

Nursing facilities can participate in AHCA’s Nursing Facility Staffing Survey (2011) in one of two ways:

  1. Individual facilities may download the survey (PDF format, 120 KB, Excel format 56 KB), then complete and mail the survey to AHCA 2011 Nursing Facility Vacancy Survey, American Health Care Association, 1201 L Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20005, scan and email the surveys to research@ahca.org, or fax completed surveys to 202-842-3860.
