Submit Suggestions to Coronavirus Nursing Home Commission

July 10, 2020

The Commission on Safety and Quality in Nursing Homes has announced it is accepting ideas and suggestions from the public until 5pm Friday, July 17. The Commission began meeting in early July; it is tasked with conducting a comprehensive assessment of the nursing home response to the COVID-19 pandemic in order to inform current efforts to safeguard the health and quality of life of residents, and prepare for future threats to resident safety and public health.
Members of the public have the opportunity to provide their perspectives based on their experience with nursing homes. Comments are limited to 500 characters.  To submit your thoughts, go to:  https://sites.mitre.org/nhcovidcomm/public-engagement/.
In addition to this option, the public can choose from 3 other ways to engage: 1) submitting a research article; 2) indicating their interest in the well-being of residents and providing their contact information; or 3) indicating their interest in the well-being of staff and providing their contact information.
Consumer Voice urges you to share your comments with the Commission so that Commission members hear directly from consumers and advocates around the country.
