Nebraska Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
The Nursing Home Quality Protection Act, enacted in 2001, provides safeguards
that are more stringent for our elder Americans from institutional elderly
abuse and subpar nursing home care. It strives to provide better quality
of care to nursing home residents.
The Act came about at the urging of consumer and elder advocates, media
pressure, and government concerns and was supported by the Alliance for
Retired Americans; Alzheimer's Association; American Federation of
State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME); National Association
of Social Workers (NASW); National Citizens'' Coalition for Nursing
Home Reform (NCCNHR); National Committee to Preserve Social Security and
Medicare (NCPSSM); and Service Employees'' International Union (SEIU).
