Choosing Nursing Care: What is the Difference Between Non-profit and For-profit?
The Institute of Medicine documented differences in the quality of care between non-profit and for-profit nursing homes in their report, “For-Profit Enterprise in Health Care.” They found that for-profit facilities, often associated with a chain-operated corporation, “tended to devote fewer resources to direct patient care, resulting in poorer quality of care for residents.” They went on to find that in the areas of resources, licensure violations, complaints and measures of quality, non-profit nursing facilities generally provided better, higher quality care.
These findings were substantiated by several other studies including an investigative report by The New York Times in September, 2007, which found that non-profit nursing facilities generally had higher nurse staffing levels and fewer health care deficiencies than for-profit facilities.
Additionally, this was followed by a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report in 2011 that nursing facilities with the poorest quality were more likely to be for-profit, a part of a chain and have almost 24% fewer registered nurses per residents per day than their non-profit counterparts.
To make an informed decision about your nursing care needs, ask questions about the ownership and sponsorship of the facility you are visiting.
