Materials Available from COVID-19: Advocating for Nursing Home Residents - Part II

April 27, 2020

As the COVID-19 crisis evolves, the number of outbreaks in nursing homes is increasing. CMS has issued unprecedented guidance, waivers, and restrictions on resident protections; and has expanded coverage and flexibility through Medicare and Medicaid. At the same time, State and local governments have also issued orders and taken sometimes controversial actions to try to stem the spread of this virus. The impact on long-term care residents has been tremendous.

In Part II of the webinar series, we continued to look at issues affecting residents and included examples of State-level advocacy that are currently underway to influence state action and protect residents.
