Zinn, Jacqueline S.
Gerontologist, v33 n6 p721-29 Dec 1993
Examined extent to which nursing homes adjust staffing and care practices relative to local market conditions. Results suggest that facilities employ more nonprofessional nursing staff in markets in which professional nurse wages are higher. Registered nurse staffing levels are higher in markets with higher percentage of self-pay nursing home residents and lower percentage of for-profit nursing homes. (Author/NB)
