Oklahoma ranks among the worst in the nation on several measures of quality of care in nursing homes. This must stop! AARP Oklahoma has created the Nursing Home CARE Plan which is a series of bills that begin to correct the ways in which our state’s most frail and vulnerable are cared for:
- HB 1902 / SB280: Ties nursing home reimbursements to quality of care.
- SB 142: Puts an end to the shameful and immoral practice of using antipsychotic drugs to sedate nursing home residents instead of providing proper medical care.
- SB 888: Will make sure all Oklahoman’s are aware of the options available to them for long-term care and given the opportunity to receive care in the setting of their choice.
We need your help. Please email and call your state legislator today and tell them to support the AARP Oklahoma Nursing Home CARE Plan and help our state’s seniors live independent and dignified lives.
Email your state Representative or call 1-844-248-8226.
Thank you for your support and helping to protect our state’s most frail and vulnerable. If you are not familiar with AARP’s Nursing Home CARE Plan, please reach out to Chad Mullen at email@example.com.
