Reporting Staffing Levels

Hospitals and nursing homes licensed in accordance with New Jersey law are required to publicly disclose direct care staffing levels within the facilities and to report staffing level information to the New Jersey Department of Health.

Under the law:

  1. General hospitals are required to post direct patient care staffing levels in visible and accessible locations within specified areas.
  2. General hospitals must submit aggregate data on a monthly basis to the Department.
  3. The Department must make the information available to the public on a quarterly basis.

Staffing level information is submitted to the state electronically via the state portal. Instructions and forms for general hospitals are available to the right.
