New Podcast Episode: Increase Scrutiny of Nursing Home Finances

April 18, 2023

In this episode of the Pursuing Quality Long-Term Care podcast, we are sharing audio from Consumer Voice’s webinar that was part of the Dignity for All: Staffing Standards Now! campaign. Through this campaign, Consumer Voice 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's Public Policy Director, Sam Brooks, and Attorney, 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. Sam and Ernie also offer examples and solutions to address this industry-wide problem to ensure public dollars are going toward resident care.
