Oppose Nursing Home Staffing Mandates | HB 330, HB 646, and SB 406
Virginia’s seniors and the heroes who care for them around the clock need you. Will you help? 

Nursing homes are experiencing an unprecedented crisis. 

Since the start of the pandemic, Virginia’s nursing homes and residential care facilities have lost nearly 9,000 employees. Nursing homes have been hardest hit and continue to see a decline in their workforce. 

Despite best efforts to recruit, 59% of facilities have reported that they have received few to no applicants to fill their staffing needs. 

Meanwhile, legislation is being considered by the state to implement unattainable staffing standards that could potentially put access to care for seniors at risk.

Here’s how you can help, please take a few moments to email your legislators today urging them to oppose legislation that would implement staffing standards. 

Your email would encourage other solutions to help nursing homes remedy the staffing crisis like improvements to the Medicaid rate, which pays for the care of 6 in 10 nursing home residents and doesn’t currently cover the cost of this care and clinical staff workforce development initiatives. 

Please contact your legislators today!
