Raise the Bar on Resident Care
There's a resident care crisis in Rhode Island nursing homes. Caregivers are leaving the industry in droves because of short staffing, and nursing homes can't recruit and retain new caregivers because of low pay. It's a cycle that is dragging down the quality of care for residents.
But we can break that cycle. Together, we must demand that our elected officials raise the bar on resident care by ensuring every nursing home resident gets a minimum of 4.1 hours of care per day, and by raising wages for caregivers.
