We had this problem too. In less than ten months, four hearing aids were lost, but our Mom was not able to put her aids in; the staff was supposed to do it. Working with our audiologist, the final pair was adapted by adding a clear plastic cord that connects the two aid, and has a clip strung on it. In effect the aids are clipped to her clothes and so far it seems to be working! If on aid is not put in correctly and falls out; it doesn't get lost, it just sits on her shoulder. Also it is possible to get hearing aid insurance; ESCO is the company we use. You are lucky that the nursing home paid for a new pair; most don't.
