Patient Safety Act? Sound familiar? United States Senate began informal hearings yesterday on elder abuse and how to prevent future abuse. What ideas does the Bill contain? A national registry to prevent criminals from being employed by long-term care facilities.
The Bill is based on laws that exist in 7 states, which deny employment in long term care facilities to those with criminal backgrounds. Want to listen to the hearings? I think it will be worth your time – Listen Here.
The first witness is remarkable – please listen to Jennifer Coldren, Witness #1.
Think her story is unique? You would be surprised and shocked her story is not unique.
