THE ALLIANCE FOR QUALITY NURSING HOME CARE: A WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING!

Who wouldn’t support a resident advocacy and watchdog group called “The Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care.” Sounds like another grass roots group out to protect the rights of the elderly and assure good care and treatment in America’s nursing homes. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.

So who is behind this champion of the elderly poor? The alliance is no industry watchdog. It is the industry! The Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care is 16 of the largest chains. It gave $100,000 to Tom Delay’s political action committee that redrew districts for the Texas Legislature, a contribution that figured prominently in criminal charges against the former House speaker. When the alliance needed a lobbyist, it hired Thomas Scully, the Medicare administrator who squelched the true cost of the federal prescription drug plan.
