Nurse aide turnover can be mitigated with scheduling tweaks: study

McKnight's Long-Term Care News (12/19, Henreckson) reports, "Skilled nursing facilities struggling with staff retention should take a closer look at their scheduling, according to a new study on part-time certified nursing assistant turnover." The study "found that scheduling CNAs regularly with the same group of teammates reduced turnover by nearly 25%." If facilities "capitalize on the results of the study, it could go a long way toward cheaply and effectively addressing the nursing home staffing crisis, according to" the study's lead author. The study was published in Manufacturing & Services Operations Management.
