Long-term care staffing crisis looms.

The long-term care industry will face a critical staffing shortage due to demand for workers, said Allen Rosenbloom, president of the Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care, in an Alliance press release. The industry will require approximately 800,000 direct care workers by 2010, he told the National Commission for Quality Long-Term Care. Rosenbloom said a stable, well-trained work force is essential to quality care, and that the commission should focus on the shortage of clinical educators who train registered and licensed nurses. The commission should also consider making training, mentoring, and career ladder programs a priority, according to the release.
