Please Continue to Advocate for Nursing Home Residents
During these difficult times, it remains vital for patients and their families to understand that nursing home residents still have the right to proper care. And providers should always be held accountable when that care goes badly wrong.
The “Safe to Work Act” was recently introduced in the U.S. Senate. The Act is designed to provide an escape route for nursing homes if negligent care and harmful abuse harms or kills nursing home residents. This immunity would extend for five years and apply to all harm to nursing home residents.
