We warned you.
When lawmakers downplay nursing home neglect, all it does is ensure the status quo. In fact, Florida’s Legislature has already whiffed twice in failing to pass proactive power generator legislation, legislation that certainly would have prevented the Hollywood Hills tragedy.
So let’s make sure that they don’t swing and miss this time around. If they do, it will be the residents who will strike out, losing the battle for safer homes.
Call your lawmaker today and demand tougher emergency management requirements for nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
