Many Louisianans are currently receiving care in a nursing facility, and HB 281 will provide these residents, and their family members, with an ability to install a video monitoring device in their room.
HB 281 is an opportunity for virtual visitation that will help family caregivers to remain connected with their loved ones, and to make them an active part of the resident’s care team.
Send a message to your legislator - please support HB 281!
