Increase Scrutiny of Nursing Home Finances Pursuing Quality Long-Term Care

    • Education

February marked 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 that was part of the “Dignity for All: Staffing Standards Now!” campaign. This campaign is advocating for a minimum staffing standard in nursing homes.

This discussion highlighted how there is little accountability for how nursing homes spend taxpayer dollars, despite receiving tens of billions of dollars each year in Medicare and Medicaid dollars. In this episode, you will hear Consumer Voice and Ernie Tosh discuss the new report, “Where do the Billions of Dollars Go? A Look at Nursing Home Related Party Transactions.” The report takes an in-depth look at how nursing home owners and operators funnel billions of dollars through companies they own with little to no accountability for how that money is used each year. They also offer examples and solutions to address this industry-wide problem to ensure public dollars are going toward resident care.
