Last week, Paula Span, of the New York Times, detailed the findings of a recently published study that found nursing home ownership status was significantly related to job satisfaction. The study, published in the September 2011 issue of The Gerontologist, was conducted by a research team that included INQRI grantee, Linda Flynn, PhD, RN, FAAN, as well as INQRI NAC member, Linda H. Aiken, PhD, RN, FAAN. While this study may not have been published in 2012, Ms. Span's discussion of the study's findings in last week's New York Times demonstrates that this issue will be of great importance as the baby boomer generation continues to age and more adult children are faced with the task of finding the best care facilities for their loved ones.
