Nearly half of COVID-19 deaths are nursing home residents or care providers. But right now, some are responding to this crisis by proposing to protect nursing home facilities from lawsuits.
Congress MUST protect the health and rights of residents and their families to seek legal justice. Care facilities need to be held accountable when residents suffer harm, neglect, and even death.
Tell your lawmakers: Uphold the health and rights of nursing home residents and their families during the pandemic. Reject any proposal that allows nursing homes to avoid legal accountability related to COVID-19.
