Legislation that Would Improve Nursing Home Conditions Introduced in House

August 17, 2022

This month, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) has introduced two bills that would improve conditions in nursing homes.  Consumer Voice supports both pieces of legislation.  The Linking Investors and Nursing Home Quality (LINHQ) Act would bring transparency into nursing home ownership and financial activity by requiring nursing homes and parties with ownership interests to disclose ownership and financial information each year.  The Infrastructure Modernization Project Related to the Overall Enhancement of Nursing Homes Act (IMPROVE Nursing Homes Act) would provide funding for resident-centered nursing homes by creating a grant program to convert traditional nursing homes into small-house nursing homes with person-centered cultures.
