If your facility has not already done so, please take the time to complete this survey today. This information is imperative due to the upcoming staffing legislation to set staffing ratios for nursing homes. See CHWS memo below: 

The Center for Health Workforce Studies at the School of Public Health, University at Albany monitors annual health care employment trends in the state of New York and issues a report of its findings each year. Our most recent report, The Health Care Workforce in New York, 2017-2018: Trends in the Supply and Demand for Health Workers can be found at our website www.chwsny.org

We are writing to ask for your assistance in obtaining more timely information on health care workforce employment. The primary purpose of this brief survey is to better understand the current recruitment and retention problems faced by Nursing Homes and Adult Homes. We have worked with LeadingAge, Foundation for Quality Care, and the Continuing Care Leadership Coalition to ensure that the questions asked in this survey reflect issues currently relevant to you. 

Your individual answers to the survey will be kept strictly confidential, and all information collected will be aggregated and reported only at regional and state levels. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete.

We would appreciate your response by January 31, 2020. Your participation will contribute to increased understanding of current and emerging health workforce issues in New York. The final report will be released in the spring-summer and will be available on the Center’s website. 

If you have any questions, please call or e-mail me at 518-402-0250 or kstiegler@albany.edu. Thank you for your support of this important study.
