Participate in AHCA's 2013 Staffing Survey

The American Health Care Association (AHCA) is conducting its annual, nationwide staffing survey to examine retention and turnover rates for nursing facility employees.  The 2013 Staffing Survey is being sent to all nursing facilities in the United States.  All facility providers are asked to complete and return the survey by Thursday, May 1, 2014. Individual center responses to the survey will be kept confidential. Published results will appear in the aggregate form only.

Reporting 2013 staffing trends helps facilities to identify areas of improvement and assist with quality initiatives.  AHCA members may also be recognized for their staff turnover results through the Association’s 2014 Quality Initiative Recognition Program.

In addition, AHCA members can access individual survey results online through LTC Trend Tracker.  Members can compare staffing data to national and state averages, as well as local peers in aggregate. Individual center data on peers are confidential and not made available to others.

Responses help provide representative and accurate data on our workforce, including creating benchmarks on nursing center staffing at the national and state level. Information from the survey will also be used to develop policy, create quality improvement tools and advocate to our nation’s policymakers on workforce-related issues.
