Nursing home staff turnover up 25 percent from last year: survey

The national nursing home staff turnover rate for all employees is up 25% from last year. That’s according to findings included in the 45th annual Nursing Home Salary & Benefits Report released Thursday by Hospital & Healthcare Compensation Service.

The average national turnover rate across executive-level positions and those in dining services, environmental services, marketing and therapy was 29.17%, according to the report. The national average turnover among registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants was 38.68%.

An upward trend in turnover among direct care workers was met with a slight drop in the average number of RNs, LPNs and CNAs per facility as reported by participants.

Last year’s overall turnover rate was 48.5%, up from 39% for all nursing home staff positions in the previous year.
