The bill has been deemed the “three strike rule”.

One lawmaker had this to say about the ranking. "This is about protecting our parents and grandparents that reside in nursing homes making sure that we get rid of the bad actors, repeated bad actors." For more, read the story.

Robert W. Carter, Jr. is a Virginia attorney whose law practice is dedicated to protecting the rights of the victims of nursing home and assisted living neglect and abuse in Richmond, Roanoke, Norfolk, Lynchburg, Danville, Charlottesville, and across Virginia.
