Abstract:
The aim of this study was to examine the effect of nurse staffing on both rehospitalizations and emergency department emergency department visits among short-stay nursing home residents in the United States. Data for 11,132 US nursing homes were drawn from the 2016 Nursing Home Compare. We found that the Five-Star Quality Rating System’s staffing rating is a significant predictor for the rates of rehospitalization and emergency department visit among short-stay nursing home residents. The results also showed the importance of registered nurse staffing in nursing home caring for short-stay residents. Administrators and policy-makers can employ the findings to formulate management strategies that will reduce rehospitalizations and emergency department visits among nursing home residents.
