Biggest Nursing Home Bill in a Generation Heads to the State Senate

CANHR-sponsored Assembly Bill 1502 (Muratsuchi and Wood) was passed by the state Assembly on January 31 and is headed to the state Senate!  AB 1502 will end the longstanding problem of zombie nursing home licenses, where nursing homes are operated by unsuitable, unapproved, and unaccountable persons and entities while the actual licensee is long gone from the scene.  The bill is opposed by the nursing home industry and is sure to face a battle in the Senate.  Be ready for alerts about how you can help support the most important nursing home reform bill in decades.
