Tell Nursing Homes to Stop Stealing Seniors' Rights
Did you know that nursing homes can mistreat and neglect our loved ones without being held publicly accountable for their actions?
Buried in the fine print of many nursing home admissions contracts are forced arbitration clauses that deprive nursing home residents and their families of their constitutional rights. During the incredibly stressful nursing home admissions process, many nursing home corporations push residents and their families into signing away their right to go to court — even in instances when residents suffer severe neglect, serious injuries, death or sexual and physical abuse.
But with your help, this can be stopped. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that administers Medicare and Medicaid, is currently considering ending forced arbitration for nursing homes that receive public funding (nearly all).
Join us in telling CMS to put our loved ones' rights above corporate profits and stop forced arbitration. Sign the petition today!
