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

The Nursing Home Transparency and Improvement Act will require disclosure of the wide array of individuals and entities that own, operate, and finance nursing homes, and it will require nursing homes to escrow fines if they appeal violations. It also will provide consumers ready access to information that is now unavailable or hard to obtain, such as accurate information about staffing levels and turnover rates; sanctions against facilities; and inspection reports.

The Elder Justice Act will improve training of long-term care ombudsmen and the capacity of other public agencies to investigate neglect and abuse. It also requires reporting neglect and abuse in long-term care facilities.

The Patient Safety and Abuse Prevention Act provides for a national program of criminal background checks on workers who provide long-term care services in facilities and private homes.
