TEXAS NURSING HOMES WANT MORE MONEY

I ran across an Associated Press article about nursing home owners wanting higher Medicaid reimbursement rates from the state of Texas. I have no problem with their request. However, any increase in reimbursement rates should be tied to better nursing home care….including higher salaries for nurse assistants and all staff. Increase payments should also be accompanied by minimum staffing levels.

Having a sufficiently trained staff, in sufficient numbers to provide needed daily care, should be the number one goal of every nursing home in America!
