What nursing home turnover means for quality of care
The COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues in the U.S.
Of note, the US Food and Drug Administration authorized a new vaccine from Johnson & Johnson for emergency use. But vaccine equity is still a concern as President Joe Biden promised a COVID-19 vaccine for “every adult in America” by the end of May 2021.
Health Affairs’ Jessica Bylander and Rob Lott meet up on Health Affairs This Week to discuss the latest on the vaccine rollout as well as new research on nursing home staff turnover, which was published in the March 2021 edition of Health Affairs. The results were recently profiled by New York Times’ Reed Abelson.
