This is the March 6, 2019 hearing on "Not Forgotten: Protecting Americans from Abuse and Neglect in Nursing Homes," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance. From the opening statement of Chuck Grassley: "Hardly a week goes by without seeing something about nursing home abuse or neglect in the national news. Every family has a loved one--a mother, a father, or a grandparent--who may someday need nursing home care. That makes this a topic of enormous concern, then, to every American. [...] According to the Inspector General, a whopping one-third of nursing home residents experienced harm while under the care of their federally funded facilities. And in more than half of these cases, the harm was preventable." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Patricia Blank, Maya Fischer, David Grabowski, David Gifford, Kate Goodrich, Antoinette Bacon, and Keesha Mitchell.
