Safe Staffing in Nursing Homes Now!
In case you missed it: Watch the video
Join with the National Consumer Voice, the AFL-CIO and SEIU this Thursday, July 13 at 2:00pm ET for a virtual rally to let the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) know that a strong federal staffing standard is the only way to end the long-term care crisis in our country. Together, we'll shed light on the nursing home staffing crisis through stories of workers, residents and families, allies and elected officials, and learn ways to speak directly to CMS and express our united support of a federal staffing standard.
CMS is gearing up to release a proposed rule that would establish the first ever federal staffing standard for nursing homes. This standard will lay the foundation for improving care and care jobs, and holding nursing home corporations accountable for actions — or inactions — that prioritize profits over people.
Safe staffing saves lives. Hear from elected officials, nursing home workers and residents, advocates, and union leadership. Sponsored by the AFL-CIO, The National Consumer Voice and SEIU.
