The Long Term Care Community Coalition of New York recently released a report, "Government Monitoring & Oversight of Nursing Home Care: The Relationship Between Federal and State Agencies," on the major issues relating to the functioning of state & federal oversight of nursing home care. The LTCCC examined issues such as the persistent problems despite joint state and federal oversight and challenges to ensuring that residents receive the care they are entitled to under the law. The report includes a special case study on oversight of nursing homes in New York State but is applicable to the nation as a whole.
