Nursing homes in New York and across the country too often fail to provide safe care and a dignified quality of life for their residents. The problem in many facilities is lack of staffing - about 90% of nursing homes do not have enough staff to provide adequate care for their residents!
New York is one of a minority of states that fails to ensure adequate staffing. Meanwhile, there is no limit to how much profits nursing homes can make.
The nursing home industry has lobbyists in Albany to protect their interests. Who is looking out for nursing home residents? Please take a moment now to send a message in support of safe staffing.
