Is there a difference? Nursing in proprietary and nonprofit nursing homes

Is there a difference? Nursing in proprietary and nonprofit nursing homes

Journal of Gerontological Nursing 19(1): 28-34, 38

Nurses working in proprietary and nonprofit nursing homes allocate their time in similar ways across various job responsibilities. Nurses who work in nursing homes obtain health histories and perform physical and psychosocial assessments on very few patients, regardless of home ownership. Compared with nurses who work in nonprofit nursing homes, nurses who work in proprietary homes perform significantly more physical examinations on their patients. Nurses employed by proprietary and nonprofit nursing homes receive similar hourly wages, but those employed in proprietary nursing homes receive fewer fringe benefits.
