Frontline Caregiver Daily Practices: A Comparison Study of Traditional Nursing Homes and The Green House Project Sites
December 1, 2010
This report compares the apportionment of staffing hours per resident day (HPRDs) among certified nursing assistants (CNAs) in traditional skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and those that have adopted the Green House model. It finds that CNAs in Green House facilities spend 24 more minutes each day on direct care activities than CNAs in traditional facilities. The report finds that the Green House model also gives CNAs more time to spend on indirect care activities and to engage directly with residents.
