SNF employment rebounds after months of decline

An increase in SNF employment has occurred after several months of decline following the implementation of PDPM. SNFs added a reported 2,400 jobs in January, according to newly released data from the  U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ latest jobs report.

While it’s too early to determine if the increase in jobs will be a trend throughout Q1, the rebound is a relief after the thousands of jobs lost in SNFs across Q4 2019.
