The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) implemented new regulations to improve care for nursing home residents. The regulations include mandated minimum staffing levels to ensure sufficient qualified personnel, increased transparency of how Medicaid payments are used by facilities, and more thorough inspections to hold nursing homes accountable. Additionally, all facilities must now have a registered nurse on-site 24/7 to provide care. These standards aim to enhance the overall quality of life for residents in long-term care facilities.
