Leading Journal for Geriatric Nursing Concludes Harm Linked to Understaffing

“Inadequate staffing has serious consequences for the nutritional care of nursing home residents. A sufficient number of well-educated and supervised staff members are critical to improving care.” [p. 64]

“Throughout the 23-month data collection period, inadequate staffing emerged as a major factor that influenced nutritional care.” [p. 66]

“A serious consequence of inadequate staffing was that some residents got little or no food. Often those who were left in their rooms were the most impaired, physically and cognitively. Sometimes the trays were taken into their rooms, but no one assisted the residents; they were given a few bites of food and sometimes no food at all. The tray was returned to the cart virtually untouched.” [p. 69]
