Manpower Needs in Health Services.
Solomon, Herman S.
All hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and home nursing and ambulance services in New York State were surveyed to determine projected needs for 39 specific occupations for nursing staff, technicians, and aides. There were 326,000 persons working in the medical care facilities in December 1966, and 182,000 held jobs in the 39 occupations. Hospitals employed four out of every five individuals included in the study. It was projected that over 5-year period between 1966 and 1971, medical establishments would need 152,790 new employees. School and in-service training programs were expected to graduate 97,000 persons for the surveyed occupations in this 5-year period. In only 10 of the 39 occupations did the output equal the projected need, and for the other occupations, the demand was expected to exceed supply by 26,000. Largest shortages were expected for nurses (9,000) and nurse aids (9,000). (BC)
