The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) released the first of five packages of proposed nursing home regulations. The regulations have not been updated since the 1990s. Updating the regulations to make comprehensive improvements in standards is needed now more than ever!  We urge you to comment on the proposed nursing home regulations to advocate for a comprehensive change in the outdated regulations to help improve the standards of care. Action required by Monday, August 30, 2021.  Read more in our Advocacy Alert about how to submit comments and other background information.  Updated advocacy information will be posted with the release of each additional package of proposed regulations.  Here are the comments we submitted.  Please share this information with other advocates and encourage them to submit comments.  Thank you in advance for helping with this advocacy effort!
