Health Care Reform Bill Will Also Improve Long-Term Care
Date:3/22/2010

WASHINGTON, March 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The House of Representatives' passage last night of health care reform will create the most significant improvements and changes in long-term care in a generation. NCCNHR, which led the effort to pass the Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987, championed provisions in the bill that will increase transparency of nursing home operations and quality; improve the safety of people receiving care in long-term care facilities and their homes; and strengthen agencies that investigate neglect and abuse of the elderly, including the long-term care ombudsman program.

The health care legislation incorporates several bills supported by NCCNHR, including the Nursing Home Transparency and Improvement Act, the Elder Justice Act, and the Patient Safety and Abuse Prevention Act. It also includes provisions to improve training of the long-term care workforce and expand public coverage of long-term care outside nursing homes.

"This is a momentous week for millions of Americans who need long-term care today, and the millions more who will need it in the coming years," said Sarah F. Wells, NCCNHR executive director. "The health care reform bill will give consumers more choices about where and how they receive long-term care and services, and every long-term care setting—from one's nursing home to one's own home—will be safer when it is implemented."
