Does The State Require A Certain Staff To Patient Ratio For Nursing Homes?

A: Yes, the state requires a minimum staff to patient ratio. However, this minimum ratio may not always result in insufficient staff to care properly for individual resident needs. Because of the extreme importance of sufficient staff to the quality of care, you should ask the nursing home for information about how many staff they have for each shift. Further, you might ask one of the home’s certified nursing assistants whether they have complained to management about not having enough help to provide proper care.
