Tell The Department of Health

NY Nursing Home Residents Deserve Sufficient Staffing EVERY DAY!

  • Nursing home residents need sufficient staffing levels every day, not just some days. Let the NY Department of Health (DOH) know that you oppose the proposed regulation that would measure compliance based on a quarterly average, rather than ensuring that a nursing home meets minimum standards every day.

  • Regulations must include a minimum penalty to hold employers accountable to improving care.
