HB 621 Advances - bill will help caregivers focus more time on resident care

This morning, the House Health & Human Services Committee passed HB 621 by Rep. Jim Frishe (R-54), the Nursing Home Quality Efficiency Act which helps put patients ahead of paperwork by eliminating some duplicative paperwork and reporting requirements. Thanks to the hard work of our bill sponsor, and the collective efforts of FHCA and its members, there was significant bipartisan support for the bill. We’re also watching the Senate companion, Senate Bill 482 by Senator Jack Latvala (R-16), and will keep you updated on its movement.
