NIC MAP® Data Service released its first ever Skilled Nursing Monthly Report on August 31, 2020, which includes key monthly data points from January 2012 through June 2020. Here are some key takeaways from the report:
A recent study from North Carolina State University and Georgia Tech found that healthcare workers in the United States are struggling with significant mental-health challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, including depression, anxiety, and insomnia. While all healthcare workers are at risk, one key feature of caregivers in a seniors housing and care setting is that many of these caregivers have spent months, if not years, developing relationships with the residents they serve and their families. This means the emotional toll experienced by these staff may be that much more overwhelming.
In a continuation of NIC’s commitment to release data and insights on a monthly basis in response to rapid market changes, NIC released monthly data today from the NIC Skilled Nursing Data Initiative. This release incorporates key takeaways of market trends through May 2020.
