Action Alert: Senate Bill 9 is Wrong for Kentucky
Only a few days remain in the 2013 General Assembly and lobbyists for nursing homes are pushing to pass Senate Bill 9.
Take Action: Call your state Representative 1-800-372-7181. Tell them to vote “No” on Senate Bill 9 and its “Medical Review Panel.”
Creating new barriers to justice is not the solution to improving nursing home quality.
Adult Abuse and Neglect – AARP opposes Senate Bill 9 (Senator J. Denton) and its new system to review nursing home residents’ claims of wrong doing or neglect by an appointed “Medical Review Panel.” And it requires residents pay additional filing and processing fees just to submit their case to the new review panel.
Can we count on you to make the call today and protect Kentucky seniors?
