Dignity for All: Staffing Standards Benefit Residents and Workers Pursuing Quality Long-Term Care

    • Education

This month marks the one-year anniversary of President Biden's announcement of historic nursing home reforms. Creating a minimum staffing standard, which would be the most significant increase in protections for nursing home residents in decades, was central to his plan.

In this episode, we are sharing the audio from Consumer Voice’s webinar earlier this month that launched our “Dignity for All: Staffing Standards Now!” campaign. Through this campaign, Consumer Voice is advocating for a minimum staffing standard in nursing homes. In this episode you will hear about the importance of adequate staffing for residents’ safety and health from Sam Brooks at Consumer Voice, and Toby Edelman, at the Center for Medicare Advocacy. You will also hear from Shelley Jackson, a CNA in Pennsylvania, and Margarite Grootjes, a resident in Ohio, as they share what it is like to live and work in a facility without adequate staffing.
