Staffing issues aren’t new to the homecare industry. But since launching HomeCare’s salary and staffing survey in 2014, we’ve not seen hiring pressures reach the pitch they have this year in all industries, and especially in health care, where one in three workers have reported considering quitting their positions. According to the American Hospital Association, job vacancies for nurses increased 30% from 2019 to 2020, and respiratory therapist vacancies jumped 31%. EMSI reports there will be a shortage of up to 3.2 million health care workers by 2026.
