In Times Of Low Unemployment, Quality Of Nursing Home Care Suffers

The low unemployment rate in the U.S. — which fell to a 49 year-low in September and October — is good news to many people, but perhaps not to residents of nursing homes. A Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) study found that quality of care in nursing homes improves during periods of recession and worsens when the economy is good.

The reason, according to the investigation, published in The Gerontologist, is likely linked to how the strength of the economy affects the ability of nursing homes to maintain adequate staffing levels and retain employees, researchers say.

The study found that when staffing is tight during low unemployment rates, nursing homes are more likely to suffer from symptoms of inadequate care.

CVS Health Observes National Influenza Vaccination Week By Encouraging Families To Get Their Flu Shot

In conjunction with National Influenza Vaccination Week (Dec. 2-8), CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) is reminding customers that it is not too late to get a flu shot to protect themselves and their loved ones from the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established National Influenza Immunization Week (NIVW) in 2005 to highlight the importance of continued vaccination through the busy holiday season and into the new year when flu activity is typically at its peak.

Following last year's flu season, which saw the highest levels of flu cases since 2009, a recent survey conducted online by The Harris Poll on behalf of CVS Pharmacy, found that 22% of those surveyed say that knowledge of last year's severe flu season makes them more likely to get a flu shot this year. Additionally, two-thirds (66%) of those surveyed get a flu vaccine every year, or plan to get one this year, a f

Study Among First To Describe Work Environments For Nurses In Mexico

It also adds Mexico to the list of more than 25 countries that have successfully used the Practice Environment Scale from the Nurses Work Index (PES-NWI) to measure nurses’ work environments.

“Research from around the world shows that improving nursing workforce factors—such as adequate staffing, management, and education levels—can influence patient outcomes, including boosts in quality and patient satisfaction and reduced infections and readmissions,” said Allison Squires, PhD, RN, FAAN, associate
