June 1, 2020
This project had two objectives to understand the potential impacts of minimum wage increases on nursing homes. First, the authors examined how current wage levels relate to nurse staffing patterns in nursing homes on a national level. Second, they investigated the effects of potential minimum wage increases, particularly the financial impacts that different wage-level increases could have on nursing homes nationally and in select states.
