The subtitle of this September 22, 2021 AHCA/NCAL Press Release is “86 percent of nursing homes and 77 percent of assisted living providers said their workforce situation has gotten worse over the last three months. 58 percent of nursing homes limiting new admissions due to shortages.”   There is also a corresponding 7-slide PowerPoint highlighting the survey results

Note that Assisted Living facilities are also struggling with the same issues as nursing homes.  I encourage you to review the Press Release as well as consider the survey results data.  How is your facility faring with workforce issues?
