By: NIC  |  July 14, 2020

Amid a pandemic of historic proportions, skilled nursing properties have borne some of the greatest challenges as they fight to care for the most vulnerable Americans, many of whom are frail and have multiple chronic healthcare conditions that require monitoring and medical attention. The skilled nursing industry responded quickly and aggressively by, acquiring sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE) implementing strict protocols related to sanitation, visitation and move-ins, implementing accurate and timely testing of staff and residents, and by employing new technologies, such as telehealth, to help provide care. In the latest of NIC’s popular “Leadership Huddle” webinar series, held Thursday, July 9th, skilled nursing operators discussed how the sector has changed, and where skilled nursing properties stand as much of the country has re-opened.

Jobless Rate Slips Back to 11.1% in June, but Still Remains High

By: Beth Mace  |  July 02, 2020

The Labor Department reported that nonfarm payrolls rose by 4.8 million in June and that the unemployment rate fell to 11.1%. This is decidedly good news and suggests that the employment recovery from the precipitous COVID-related drop in March and April continues to reverse course. Combined, 7.5 million jobs were generated in May and June, recouping some of the 22.2 million jobs lost in March and April.
