How are staffing mix and levels determined in nursing homes? Staffing mix is the number of nurses, cnas, and staffing levels is the number of RN's Lpns, Cnas. Am I right?
Yes, you are correct. Staffing mix and levels ought to be a balance of economics, patient need, and staff qualifications. However, as in Public Schools, staffing levels are more predominately determined by economic assets and minimum levels set by law.
