This study will examine how two different nursing home types, the medically focused institutional model and the greenhouse model, affect the retention rates for staff. Staff turnover rates are higher in nursing homes than in other healthcare facilities(Tilden, Thompson, Gajewski, & Bott, 2012; Trinkoff, Han, Storr, Lerner, Johantgen & Gartrell, 2013). There has not been extensive research done on whether the type of nursing home impacts staff retention rates. This research seeks to provide additional foundational knowledge of this topic for policy makers, health care professionals, families and advocates for the elderly, and other stakeholders.
