Supplementary notes

Hospitals track and report turnover differently, raw data was collected by the source on all employee terminations, whether voluntary or involuntary. Temporary, agency and travel staff were specifically excluded. Also, this survey does not measure transfers or “internal terminations.”
According to the source, the majority of hospitals (52.7%) include all employment classifications, such as full-time, part-time, per diem, prn, casual, occasional, etc. when reporting turnover. The remaining hospitals only include full-time and part-time employment classifications. Given this split, respondents provided data on all employees and for full/part-time staff only. For comparative purposes, the source adjusted for this distinction and report for both methodologies.
