Nursing Home REsident rights in jeopardy
All Rights given to people who live in nursng homes and their families spring from the recently revised federal regulations. Those regulations are now in jeopardy. Voices has send a letter commenting our concerns with any possible elimination or dilution of these regulations.
Our current Voices for Quality Care Handbook, New Rules for Nursing Home Care, 2017 includes the most critical of the new nursing home regulations that went into effect November 28, 2016.
We are working on a revision for this handbook. Beginning November 28, 2017, the F-Tags (the identifying codes for regulations) will be completely revised and all of the regulations will be re-ordered. We hope to have our 2018 Handbook ready for purchase on Amazon by early December. Watch for our notice of publication here.
