PRAC Collaboration on Health Care Personnel Shortages: Personnel Shortages at Nursing Homes
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act created the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC). PRAC's mission is to promote transparency and support coordinated oversight of the Federal Government's COVID-19 response in order to prevent and detect fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement, and to mitigate major risks that cross program and agency boundaries. PRAC members include Offices of Inspectors General (OIGs) at Federal agencies, some of which operate, utilize, or are otherwise impacted by health care programs. Within PRAC, a Health Subgroup has identified health care personnel as a resource critical to the Federal Government's COVID-19 response efforts. HHSOIG will work with PRAC to produce a report that describes health care personnel shortages in Federal, health-related programs operated or overseen by various Federal agencies and summarize best practices for hiring and retaining health care personnel for possible implementation. This project will involve coordinating with OIGs from multiple agencies. HHS-OIG will focus on personnel shortages at nursing homes.
