Reducing Staff Turnover: A Case Study of Dialysis Facilities

Tai, Teresa Wai Chi; Robinson, Chester D.

Collapse Box

Abstract

A multivariate logistic analysis of 42 Texas dialysis facilities indicated that younger, white, short tenure, an LVN/LPN, with less support from family and friends for emotional concerns, and less supervisor support significantly increased the likelihood of turnover (p ≤ .05) in dialysis facilities. The high annual staff turnover of these dialysis facilities increases costs and impedes the delivery of quality patient care. Managerial strategies to increase staff retention are suggested.
