LeadingAge and AHCA: Joint Nursing Home Policy Recommendations

On March 15 LeadingAge and the America Healthcare Association (AHCA) announced a set of policy recommendations aimed at ensuring quality in nursing homes. The proposal pulls together the first, immediate steps needed to address issues that LeadingAge has been talking about for years, including survey reform and staffing. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated systemic issues impacting the nursing home sector, such as workforce shortages, aging physical plants, and underfunded government reimbursements for care. Many of these issues were raised by AHCA, LeadingAge, and other stakeholders for years prior to COVID but were never fully addressed by policymakers. Through the Care For Our Seniors Act, AHCA and LeadingAge are calling on lawmakers once again to help resolve systemic challenges, as well as reflecting on ways nursing home providers themselves can improve.

Read more about the proposal, and check out the virtual press event and press release.
