Where Clinton and Trump Stand on Long-Term Care

We are now less than one month from the 2016 general election so NAHC Report would like to highlight the relevant policy positions of the two major candidates, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. This article is not meant to serve as any form of voting or political advocacy; it is intended solely for the purpose of providing information to our readers.

The most recent estimates show about 40 million family caregivers in the United States provided approximately 37 billion hours of care to adults in 2013, according to a report released by the AARP’s Public Policy Institute. The estimated economic value of the unpaid contributions of family caregivers was about $470 billion in 2013, up from approximately $450 billion in 2009.

However, the ratio of potential family caregivers to the growing number of older people is in a precipitous decline. In 2010, there were seven potential caregivers available for each person 80 or older; by 2030 there will be only four, and by 2050, when baby boomers are between 86 and 104, there will be fewer than three.

We Should Talk About Bullying in Nursing

At NAHC, we believe nurses are the backbone of America’s health care system. In home care they are often the quiet and forgotten heroes, caring for the sick, elderly and disabled that depend on them for their well-being and even their lives.

When we think of nurses we think of caring and nurturing, not bullying, which is an act or series of acts of aggression by someone in a higher level of authority over a subordinate. There is also what is called lateral violence – acts of aggression among colleagues. All this matters because bullying and lateral violence is a huge, if often unspoken, problem in nursing.

A 2007 study of student nurses found that 53% had been insulted or demeaned by a staff nurse and a 2001 ANA study found that 57 percent of nurses had been threatened or experienced verbal abuse at work.
