It’s time to pass minimum staffing requirements

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, New York ranked behind 37 other states in the number of direct-care hours — while being one of just 12 states that have not enacted minimum staffing requirements for nursing homes. Albany must finish the job and pass minimum staffing requirements to protect residents and the vital frontline workers caring for them.
