Nursing Homes in Michigan- Monthly Analysis & Key Metrics

Data as of February 11, 2024

Reviewed by Richard Saunders

The State Level Skilled Nursing Home Analysis Report

Recently, the Biden administration announced a goal of improving nursing home care, as highlighted in several important announcements (see the initial announcement and a subsequent announcement). While this is a commendable goal, it is not entirely clear what the best approach is for achieving it. Proposing minimum staffing levels for all nursing homes simplifies a complicated issue. Nursing Homes address a wide range of resident needs, from short-term rehabilitation to long-term care to dementia and memory issues, that require different levels of care. It also fails to address a national staffing shortage that will likely only worsen.

At NursingHomeDatabase.com, we believe that one critical element of any improvement effort is to have access to good, clear data and analysis that can help everyone understand the current state of affairs, identify trends, and track progress over time. To this end, we have built this series of reports that will try to illuminate the key metrics of nursing home performance for each state. Our reports are designed to provide valuable insights and inform policymakers, healthcare providers, and families who are interested in nursing home care.

The analysis for the state level report cards of nursing home care is primarily derived from data that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid ("CMS") provides. CMS publishes weekly data about nursing home occupancy and COVID-19 infections and publishes monthly reports with ratings, staffing levels, and deficiencies.

Summary Analysis of Nursing Homes in Michigan- The 10,000 foot view

Updated on February 11, 2024

According to the latest data compiled by NursingHomeDatabase.com, Michigan has a total of 426 active skilled nursing facilities and 42,086 beds. Based on the US Census estimates for the population of 10,034,113, the current total bed count represents one bed for every 238.42 persons in Michigan. There were 33,430 residents as February 11, 2024 for a state wide occupancy level of 79.43 percent. (Note that the home count is based on monthly data provided by CMS and the number of beds and the occupancy numbers are based on weekly data. There is a minor number of homes that do not report their data weekly.)

According to the monthly data, Michigan has added 80 new beds and lost 182 existing beds over the past year.

The Biden Administration has announced that it wants to regulate minimum nursing home staffing levels. They have proposed minimums of .55 hours of care per resident per day from registered nurses (RNs) and 2.45 hours of care per resident per day certified nursing aids (CNAs). These are the current level amount of hours per resident per day of care for Michigan and a comparison to national averages.

Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) 2.28 2.26
