    Inadequate Staffing is not a New Problem. Staffing has been a concern for residents and their rpesentatives for decades. While industry representatives blame the staffing crisis on current high employment rates, staffing in NURSING HOMES has been at crisis levels of both high and low employment. It INCLUDES, and HURTS consumers, Healthcare workers and results in Poor quality of Care (resident), Poor quality of Life (resident), and CNA burnout not to mention double shifts, low pay, and hardly enough time for quality family time if the CNA has a family.
