Title VI. Transparency and Program Integrity
Improving Nursing Home Safety
To improve safety for Americans receiving care in nursing homes, the Act creates incentives to correct deficiencies and improves independent monitoring.
It establishes a demonstration project to test and implement a national independent monitoring program to oversee inter-State and large intra-State nursing home chains. And to make sure that families and residents have the chance to prepare and plan, the administrator of a facility preparing to close must provide written notice to residents, legal representatives of residents and the State in advance of closing the facility.
