Consumer Voice and Other Advocates Send Letter to Senate Leaders Advocating for Better Protections for Nursing Home Residents

December 01, 2020

Consumer Voice, along with several other state and national advocacy organizations, sent a letter urging Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Schumer to pass a COVID-19 relief package that would better protect nursing home residents by 1) controlling the spread of coronavirus in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities; 2) alleviating the isolation, sickness and death of residents; and 3) safeguarding workers who risk their lives to care for them.  The letter calls upon the Senate to immediately pass a COVID relief bill that will protect nursing home residents – and staff, effect policy changes to improve care and conditions in nursing homes, and hold providers accountable for how the money is spent.
