The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care is urging concerned citizens to help counteract efforts to undermine recently revamped federal nursing home regulations that would preserve the rights of and offer further protection to nursing home residents.
According to National Consumer Voice, “these updated, stronger regulations include a greater focus on person-centered care, improved protections against abuse, neglect and exploitation; improved staff training; notice to ombudsman of proposed transfers/discharges; required infection prevention, and much more.”
