LeadingAge counters after Senator’s staffing demands

A leading industry advocate is firing back, a few days after one U.S. senator demanded changes related to nursing home staffing.

Last week, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) sent a sharply worded letter to the head of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. In it, the ranking member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance demanded answers on how the federal government plans to better hold nursing homes accountable for staffing decisions, in the wake of a critical New York Times story.
