Staff retention in the home care arena has long been a topic of concern. With decreasing rates of reimbursement leading to increasing workloads and documentation requirements, high expectations from organizations/patients/families/staff, personal and professional boundaries that can be challenging to maintain, and other factors inherent to working in the home care industry, the need to develop strategies to promote staff retention is now more critical than ever. This presentation will examine factors that can lead to staff burnout, mitigating factors that can promote staff retention, and potential strategies for organizations to combat the high rates of staff turnover. The implications for increased staff retention on organizational success, staff satisfaction, and improved patient experiences will be discussed.
