State Senator Still Pushing Three Strikes Rule for Nursing Homes

A state senator is still advocating for laws with tighter restrictions on nursing homes. The law represents a three strikes rule where the state can revoke licenses from nursing homes. Nursing homes are fighting against it with hopes that if they receive three strikes, they can have the opportunity to improve care before losing a license.

The senator pushing for the three strikes rule had this to say about the definition of a strike, “It is anything that puts the nursing home recipient in immediate jeopardy of potential serious harm or death… [citizens] need to have the confidence that when they place their loved ones, parents and grandparents, in a nursing home that it's free from abuse and neglect.” For more, read the story.
