Concrete, clear, and appropriate minimum staffing standards are needed now to finally realize the promise of the Nursing Home Reform Law in the lives of residents and the vast majority of American families who will depend on nursing home services at some time or another. In April 2022, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a request for information on revising the Requirements of Participation for nursing homes to establish numerical minimum staffing standards. Please find below LTCCC’s comments in response, developed with long-term care policy experts and resident advocacy organizations.

Note: Submit a response to CMS by 06/10/2022 at 11:59 pm EDT to make your voice heard. We recommend using this excellent resource by the National Consumer Voice for instructions and suggestions on submitting a response .
