The link between poor care and understaffing at nursing homes has long been established – study after study, including one by the Institute of Medicine, show that insufficient numbers of nurse aides and qualified nurses lead to bad outcomes, yet our nursing homes remain critically understaffed – and patients suffer needless injury and death as a result. The Institute of Aging in Chapel Hill is presenting a UNC expert’s lecture on the impact of nurse aide turnover, part of the staffing problem, tomorrow. Attendance is open to the public and free. Attendance information follows:
