Surprise Biden order ‘punishing’ for nursing home providers

An executive order signed by President Joe Biden Tuesday afternoon will trigger broad, cabinet-level activities intended to improve nursing home and other caregiving jobs and hold providers accountable for workforce quality.

The American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living praised the administration’s goal of supporting long-term care workers as the sector continues to face a historic workforce crisis. But leaders remain leery of a staffing mandate and other punitive approaches.

The administration’s fact sheet said the connection between Medicare payments and turnover would build on a still-unpublished staffing mandate.
