New Troubling Rule Prevents Information

The Department of Health and Human Services now says you can’t have copies of inspection reports that might explain how your loved one in nursing home care came to have a broken bone, or bruises. The request for reports on such incidents “divert employees from their federal survey, certification and enforcement responsibilities,” said Michael Leavitt, HHS secretary.
