Angry Trump Administration Eases Nursing Home Fines in Victory for Industry

Quote:
The Trump administration is scaling back the use of fines against nursing homes that harm residents or place them in grave risk of injury, part of a broader relaxation of regulations under the president.

Quote:
The shift in the Medicare program’s penalty protocols was requested by the nursing home industry. The American Health Care Association, the industry’s main trade group, has complained that under President Barack Obama, federal inspectors focused excessively on catching wrongdoing rather than helping nursing homes improve.

At the same time he wants to do this:
Donald Trump sides with nursing homes that want to limit residents' right to sue | cleveland.com

I worked in a top rated skilled care facility, we were VA certified also which is not easy.
I am happy to say we cut our fines down to nothing. A big incentive for the numbers crunchers.
What is needed is to expand that system so that large corporation homes are scored on an individual facility basis instead of an across the board percentage.
This move takes us in the opposite direction.
On behalf of the infirm elderly and their families, I am ashamed of this President.
Again.

Another place where some of the most vulnerable are tossed to the corporate wolves.
