DOJ’s Task Force

Published on March 18th, 2020

The U.S. Department of Justice recently unveiled a new task force that aims to rein in “grossly substandard” nursing home care.  The national nursing home initiative will focus its efforts on the epidemic of short-staffing, inadequate infection control procedures and patient neglect and abuse.

Millions of seniors count on nursing homes to provide them with quality care, and to treat them with dignity and respect when they are most vulnerable,” Attorney General William Barr said. “Yet, all too often, we have found nursing home owners or operators who put profits over patients, leading to instances of gross abuse and neglect.

The Trump administration has made nursing home safety and quality a key feature of its healthcare strategy. It’s an important issue for the president’s political base, which skews older than the electorate, especially in an election year. But it’s also a growing concern for a healthcare system that’s struggling to deal with an aging population in need of more long-term care services.
