Navigating Staffing Challenges in Post-Acute Care: Solutions and Strategies

Staffing challenges in post-acute care can be daunting due to fluctuating patient volumes and specialized skill sets required. However, the right strategies and solutions can effectively mitigate these challenges. Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and other post-acute care providers have an opportunity to overcome staffing shortages and ensure quality care.

Challenges in skilled nursing include:

  • High turnover rates disrupt the continuity of care and impact patient outcomes.
  • Staffing shortages lead to difficulty in recruiting and retaining qualified clinicians.
  • Fluctuating patient volumes can make scheduling caregiving staff difficult, thereby impacting care.
