A hearing held by the Senate discussed wages and a 94% turnover rate for nursing home workers

Due to the challenges imposed on the nursing home workforce from the pandemic, the Senate examined the issues more closely on Monday.

Wages for workers in nursing homes are currently $12.50 an hour upstate and $15 in New York City.

The turnover rate is 94%.


Dora Fisher of the Health Care Association of New York State said that people can’t afford to stay in the line of work for such little pay.

Operators of the homes stated they can’t raise wages because Medicaid reimbursement has remained the same for 12 years. By raising wages they would have to raise the cost for residents who are already on a fixed income.
