Elder Justice Newsletter Highlights “No Harm” Deficiencies – LTCCC

Below is a link to our latest Elder Justice Newsletter, published jointly with the Center for Medicare Advocacy. Substandard care and insufficient staffing are widespread and serious problems that have been in the news all too often lately.

The nursing home industry has complained for decades that facilities don’t get enough money to hire more staff and that basic safety standards are too “burdensome.” But why do facilities take in new residents if they can’t – or won’t – hire sufficient staff? Why do companies buy and operate facilities if they are not committed to at least meeting (if not exceeding) the standards of care which they are paid to provide?

In the Elder Justice Newsletter, we highlight citations, including deficiencies related to abuse, neglect, and substandard care, that have been identified as not causing any resident harm. The goal of this brief newsletter is to shed light on the issue of so-called “no harm” deficiencies, which typically result in no fine or penalty to the nursing home. Do YOU think these deficiencies caused “no harm”?

If you believe that nursing homes should be held accountable for substandard care, please take a moment to visit our Action Alert Center and send a free message to your political leaders – it CAN make a difference!
