As We Expected!

July 26, 2021

We have been working on helping providers combine residential houses to ease the staffing crunch, and last week put together a protocol for doing that.  All that information can be found on the Provider Quicklinks Page

Over the weekend, we sent a short survey asking for status and opinion – interesting responses, but nothing unexpected!  Providers would like to mandate vaccines, but feel that they can not risk the backlash from staff who would leave rather than comply! 

And this morning a provider who has been a fixture in the Valley for many years is closing ten beds – they can no longer be staffed!   And the administrative staff who have been filling in are simply too tired to safely continue.  This will not  be the last time!
