New Consumer Voice Report on Nursing Home Immunity

June 22, 2021

Since the very beginning of the pandemic, the nursing home industry has lobbied governors and state legislatures to sign executive orders or pass laws that prevent residents from holding nursing homes accountable in court. The industries lobbying efforts have been effective, with 39 states providing some kind of immunity to nursing homes.  As a result of these executive orders and laws, tens of thousands of nursing home residents now reside in facilities where negligent care will likely be excused by courts.  Consumer Voice has created a report detailing the status of immunity in every state along with information on the law or executive order.
