AARP Supports Safe Staffing

AARP is a senior advocacy group that has pressured Congress to move forward with the “long overdue nursing home staffing mandate.” The group has vowed to resist any measures to overturn safe staffing. The minimum safe staffing level in facilities helps meet the safety needs of the residents and protect the residents’ rights.

AARP opposes the attempt to overturn the minimum standard through campaigns, ads, and a truck with a pro-mandate billboard that will circle Capitol Hill.

The advocacy group explains how shameful that this has not been done sooner because of all the families and residents that have suffered as a result.
