The pandemic has exposed significant vulnerabilities in skilled nursing facilities, rural acute and critical access hospitals. Overwhelmed by surges of COVID-19 patients amidst a shortage of critical resources in many of these communities, providers faced insurmountable challenges that resulted in higher physician and nurse burnout, significant care delays, lower patient satisfaction, and declining revenue due to poor quality scores.
