The government will consider easing regulations on nursing care staffing. The government will review the current standard that requires at least one staff member to be assigned to every three residents in a nursing home, and make adjustments around a proposal that would allow one person to handle four residents. IT (information technology), such as sensors, will be utilized to increase productivity in the nursing care field. Drastic regulatory reforms are needed to alleviate the shortage of human resources in the nursing and medical fields, while curbing the expansion of social security expenses that are putting pressure on public finances.
