Consumer Voice Joins Amicus Brief Emphasizing Residents' Rights

October 12, 2022

Consumer Voice joined an amicus brief, filed with partner organizations, to the U.S. Supreme Court in Health and Hospital Corp. v. Talevski on behalf of residents of nursing facilities to maintain their ability to enforce their rights under the Federal Nursing Home Reform Act and Section 1983. Consumer Voice filed the brief with AARP Foundation, California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform, Center for Medicare Advocacy, Justice in Aging, and the Long Term Care Community Coalition.  The amicus emphasizes that the federal nursing facility law establishes rights for residents, and that government enforcement is inadequate to protect those rights. The case is scheduled for oral argument in November.
