Below are a series of links to valuable resources that can help your facility implement practices that promote consistent assignment and reduce staff turnover with a view to improving the culture of your nursing home. Many of these resources have been produced by the national Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes campaign. The campaign, of which IPRO is a partner, works to help nursing homes achieve excellence in the quality of care and quality of life for the more than 1.5 million residents of America’s nursing homes.
