More Research Evidence Supporting the Not-for-Profit Difference
A recent study by international researchers shows that for-profit facilities tend to have lower staff-to-patient ratios and lower costs in order to generate profits.
In addition, for-profit services have been found to be of inferior quality across sectors and those LTC homes that converted to for-profit ownership showed a decline in some quality measures.
Furthermore, higher rates of hospital admissions and poorer outcome measures were found for for-profit LTC homes compared to Not-for-Profit homes.
A summary of this study follows, from the York University website.
