Advocacy Organizations Call For Restoration of Visitation Rights in Nursing Homes

Frustrated with visitation policies that are stuck in pre-vaccine 2020, CANHR and several other nursing home resident advocacy organizations called on CMS to restore visitation rights in U.S. nursing homes. Many facilities across the country continue to limit visitation access for residents to 30 minutes per week, leading to extended isolation, deprivation of care, and harm to residents.
