Feds Move In, Finally

The federal government has promised a nationwide crackdown on nursing home abuses with the worst nursing homes being targeted for repeat surprise inspections, instead of the annual surveys conducted under the current system. Furthermore, federal officials pledge they will impose tough sanctions on violators, including fines and a ban on new admissions under the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The special enforcement effort will be aimed at “poor performers,” a category that might include as many as 15% of the nation’s 17,000 nursing homes. The HensonFuerst team of nursing home abuse lawyers recommend viewers to this blog show their support of this measure by contacting the American Society on Aging at www.asaging.org.
