Last month the White House made a major announcement about nursing home reforms, perhaps the biggest news for nursing homes in 35 years. In Part 2 of this two-part episode, Lori Smetanka and Sam Brooks from the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care chat about their latest campaign supporting the White House reforms and discuss how consumers can bring these critical reforms – like minimum staffing standards, increased nursing home accountability and transparency – to the finish line.

Interview recorded March 21, 2022 and edited for clarity.
