The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued a notice of proposed rulemaking to roll back several nursing home standards of care. The Long Term Care Community Coalition (LTCCC) hosted a webinar on August 20, 2019, to help consumers understand the impact of these proposed changes. Dara Valanejad, a Policy Attorney at both the Center for Medicare Advocacy and LTCCC, participated in the webinar. Discussing the impact of the proposed changes, Mr. Valanejad detailed how the proposal would gut standards for resident grievances and make it easier for facilities to administer antipsychotic drugs to residents.
