The Latest Information on Staffing Levels for Every Nursing Home in New Jersey

Latest Data Indicate Low Staffing Is Both Persistent and Persuasive

Staffing is perhaps the most important factor in a nursing home resident’s quality of care and ability to live with dignity. Staffing is also widely considered to be the most important indicator of a nursing home’s safety and quality. Unfortunately, inadequate nursing home staffing is a widespread and persistent problem. Some nursing homes ensure that their facilities have enough qualified care staff, but too many nursing homes fail to maintain safe and sufficient staffing.

The following attached chart contains the latest information on staffing levels for every nursing home in New Jersey. The data are for the first quarter of 2019, the most recent period reported by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). If a facility is not listed, it has not provided the appropriate information to CMS.

The chart includes information on: (1) Each facility’s direct care RN, LPN, and CNA staffing levels; (2) Staffing levels for important non-nursing staff, including administrators and activities staff; and, (3) The extent to which the facility relies on contract workers to provide resident care.
