Turnover

This is the average percentage of staff who stop working at a care setting each year. Virtually all healthcare organizations (hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living, etc.) track and measure the number of staff who stop working (turnover) and the length of stay of staff (retention) in the same or similar jobs. A nursing home or assisted living community with high turnover rates means that new caregivers are constantly being hired and trained.
