Wage & Fringe Benefit Survey

On Monday, January 3, the survey was emailed directly to administrators, as well as human resource and business office managers whose email addresses we have on file. MHCA has modified the timeline for completing the annual Wage & Fringe Benefit survey to better align with our advocacy efforts at the Maine Legislature. The survey encompasses positions in nursing facilities, residential care, congregate housing, home health care and adult day care. 

CHANGES to 2022 Survey:

  • REVISED: COVID-19 Sheet: Brief questionnaire on the implementation of wage increases, bonuses, and agency staffing, and use of supplemental payments. Your feedback will be instrumental in our advocacy efforts.
  • NEW Job Codes: 385 Infection Preventionist (nursing facility), 386 Infection Control Program Coordinator/Infection Preventionist (assisted living/residential care) and 466 Temporary Nurse Aide.
  • Under Fringe Benefit section, Recruitment & Retention, ADDED questions 1-3.
  • Under Fringe Benefit section, Recruitment & Retention, Question 6: CHANGED reporting period to January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021.
  • Under Fringe Benefit section, Recruitment & Retention, Question 8: CHANGED reporting period to January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021. 

We strongly encourage all members to take the time to participate, as the higher the response rate, the stronger the validity of the data we gather. As always, individual responses will remain confidential. Members who participate in the survey will receive a complimentary electronic copy of the completed report, valued at $50.00 ($60.00 for a paper copy). 

Below are the initial notification and the survey provided in two formats for completion:

PDF copies should be mailed to Dianne Chicoine, Maine Health Care Association, 317 State Street, Augusta, ME 04330 OR Faxed: 207.623.4080. Email electronic copies to dchicoine@mehca.org

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Surveys should be completed for individual facilities; data should not be combined/averaged for multiple facilities within a corporation.

  • For the (490) Medical Director position ONLY, please indicate the monthly wage versus hourly.
