Justice in Aging- Benefits for Consumers in the Revised Nursing Home Regulations
The recently-revised federal nursing home regulations include important new consumer protections. Advocates, providers and others in the aging network should understand how the regulations can improve residents’ quality of care and quality of life.
This webinar, Benefits for Consumers in the Revised Nursing Home Regulations, will look at several provisions that improve on the previous version of the regulations. Justice in Aging attorney Eric Carlson will detail highlights and explain how lawyers and other advocates can use the new regulations to benefit residents. Specific topics will include, but not be limited to, care planning, resident-centered care, staff training, visitation, protections against eviction, and returning to a facility after hospitalization.
A previous Consumer Voice webinar, Introduction to the Revised Federal Nursing Home Regulations: What’s In, What’s Not and a new fact sheet, developed in partnership with the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care, offer a helpful introduction to these topics.
Eric Carlson, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
The webinar will take place on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 11:00 a.m. PT/ 2:00 p.m. ET
