JUSTICE FOR VIRGINIA'S NURSING HOME RESIDENTS

We support HB 646, a bill to provide better conditions for nursing home residents. We included some of the text from the AARP's site below.

"Our nursing home residents deserve better than subpar conditions. That’s why AARP is fighting to put the safety and well-being of nursing home residents first by asking lawmakers to pass House Bill 646.

It’s time to hold nursing homes accountable for providing safe environments and high-quality care for residents.

The Virginia General Assembly must take action to ensure residents receive the care they need by passing HB 646, which will:

• establishing minimum staffing standards, and

• implementing consistent quarterly training in issues like infection prevention protocols.

Tell Virginia lawmakers: Pass HB 646 to protect nursing home residents! Please take a moment to send a message to your state legislators and urge them to protect nursing home residents by passing HB 646. "
