Opinion: Investment, not mandates, will best solve long-term care staff shortages
Georgia’s nursing homes are at a critical turning point. We are emerging from a historic public health crisis, during which long-term care communities experienced devastating losses because of the vulnerability of our residents. Thankfully, the selfless caregivers in our buildings never wavered in their dedication to our residents, risking their personal safety each day they came to work while doing all they could to ensure the wellbeing of the vulnerable individuals in their care. Never in our history have we realized more fully the depth of our profession’s commitment, bravery and resilience.
