September 2021 Private Duty Data Point: Office Staff Salaries

Office staff turnover doesn’t grab the headlines like caregiver turnover, but there’s a strong correlation (and likely causation) between the two. Home care agencies that maintain office staff longer nearly always retain caregivers longer. According to our annual Home Care Benchmarking Study, for every 1 office staff member who quits, you’ll lose 5 additional caregivers. If you’ve already got the right people, are you paying them enough to expect them to stay long-term? If you’re looking for the right people, are you paying enough for them to choose your agency over other options?

Resource for Action Steps to Comply with the OSHA COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard

In June 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)  issued an emergency temporary standard (ETS) to protect health care workers from occupational exposure to COVID-19 in settings where people with COVID-19 are more than likely going to be present, including home-based care settings. (See this NAHC Report article for important information.)

Employers covered by the standard are required to develop and implement a COVID-19 plan to identify and control the potential COVID-19 hazards in the workplace.

In response to a number of questions, our partners at  Polsinelli have shared with us a Summary of Action Steps you as our members can reference in order to be in compliance with OSHA COVID-19 ETS. NAHC strongly urges you to look carefully at this valuable resource.
