AAHSA Survey and Certification Task Force: 'The System Is Broken and Can't Be Fixed'

ation of good providers has reached a boiling point." Veno added, "We have to help shape a better system of consumer protection for residents."

Larry Minnix, AAHSA's president and CEO, said the task force captured the demoralization of providers who feel caught in a vicious circle. "We have to break the cycle of fear that paralyzes us all: consumers fear nursing homes, nursing homes fear the state, states fear the federal government, the federal government fears Congress and Congress fears voters," Minnix said. "This system is angry, broken and can't be fixed. A system based on consistency, fairness and accuracy will help us move toward the day when there are two types of nursing homes: the excellent and the non-existent."
