Need to Regulate Assisted Living Facilities

Published on June 6th, 2020

Nursing home advocates are calling for sweeping changes at assisted living facilities after the pandemic. Legislators are seeking advice on what can be done to protect the vulnerable communities in care homes.

“I wouldn’t want to be there and I wouldn’t want my mother there right now,” said California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform Executive Director Pat McGinnis.

Nursing home advocates, including McGinnis, have called for reform at assisted living facilities for years. She said changes need to be made before more lives are lost, and that one size fits all regulations for the facilities are failing.

“They are not health facilities, it’s not like nursing homes,” McGinnis said. “They’re not trained, they don’t have to have staffing ratios, they don’t have to have health personnel, they don’t have to have the kind of infection control and procedures that we need in nursing homes.”
