As a healthcare provider with many years in long term care, I am very much a proponent of having an RN in skilled nursing facilities 24/7 for improved healthcare. My concern would be how we anticipate paying for these services? Last year, LTC took a 2% cut in funding while still being required to provide same services. It is already difficult to staff nursing facilities, particularly those in rural areas. This requirement will financially burden LTC facilities even more in labor costs without improvement in reimbursement. Would there be stipends put into place to allow NFs to meet this measure?

We will pay for this the same way we pay for everything else under Obamacare - on the backs of the working people who pay for every other liberal giveaway program.

I have had many family members who had to go to a nursing home and I can tell you I don't care who had to pay for it it needs to be fixed. My fathers room smelled so bad I had to threaten to file a complaint before they cleaned it up. it awful and why not the employees are paid so little and you get what you pay for. Being a Independent I lean left in cases like these.
