There are workforce shortages across the nation, and home health and hospices are not immune to the employee drought. The COVID-19 pandemic has not helped the situation as more agencies struggle to hire quality employees. The pandemic, along with many other stressful issues, has put a strain on healthcare workers in the post-acute industry.
The pandemic did not initiate staff shortages. It had started long before a global pandemic hit our shores. More workers are choosing to work less hours due to limited resources and the added stresses of the job. What is even worse is that many new graduates are not likely to pursue nursing in home health or hospice, because they feel under prepared to serve older populations and their unique needs.
