Letter to CMS Regarding Reports of Abuse, Neglect, and Patient Harm at Nursing Homes


04.02.18

Excerpt: “These reports raise serious questions about the degree to which the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is fulfilling its responsibility to ensure federal quality of care standards are being met, as well as its duty to protect vulnerable seniors from elder abuse and harm in facilities participating in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The adequacy of the CMS’ oversight of SNFs and NFs has also been called into question in recent reports issued by the Office of Inspector General at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS OIG) and the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO).”
