From Better Care Now: Complete Post through this link…
Right now in the United States, nursing home residents are not getting the quality, dignified care they deserve. Nursing homes are understaffed, and workers are being underpaid and burning out. Those workers are leaving the profession for better opportunities elsewhere, which only adds to the poor staffing.
President Biden has promised to establish a strong national nursing home staffing standard. Now it’s up to us to ensure that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) follows through. We need your help to make sure our message to HHS is loud and clear.
If you are a nursing home worker, have lived in a nursing home, know a loved one who has or want to improve the state of care in our country, please share your story.
