An ad hoc coalition of organizations that advocate for nursing home residents propose a Framework for Nursing Home Reform Post COVID-19. The Framework for federal change includes multiple proposals under six broad areas – (1) staffing and workforce; (2) regulation and enforcement; (3) ownership and management standards, transparency, and accountability for quality; (4) government payment systems, financial transparency, and accountability; (5) structural changes in the long-term care delivery system; and (6) nursing home redesign and rebuilding. Each proposal requires either legislative change by Congress or administrative action that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services could take under its current statutory authority.
