Factors Associated with Nursing Home Staff Turnover

Journal Article
August 1, 1996

This study examines whether job design and other organizational factors affect facility aide turnover rates in a sample of 250 nursing homes from 10 states. Facility characteristics were largely based on administrator and director of nursing interviews conducted in 1993 as a part of the Health Care Financing Administration’s (now CMS) evaluation of Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) implementation. Aide turnover was significantly reduced by involvement in interdisciplinary care plan meetings, and higher in for-profit homes.
