NASEM Releases National Nursing Home Quality Report with JHF as a Sponsor

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) have released a new report, "The National Imperative to Improve Nursing Home Quality: Honoring Our Commitment to Residents, Families, and Staff," sponsored by The John A Hartford Foundation, The Commonwealth Fund, The Sephardic Foundation on Aging, and The Samuels Foundation, and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation. 

The report, developed by the NASEM Committee on the Quality of Care in Nursing Homes, examines how our nation delivers, regulates, finances and measures quality of nursing home care, including the long-standing challenges brought to light by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report indicates that wide-ranging systemic changes are needed to transform nursing homes to meet the needs of residents, families, and staff. Strengthening the nursing home workforce, improving emergency preparedness, and increasing the transparency and accountability of nursing homes' finances, operations, and ownership are key actions among the report's comprehensive recommendations. The report echoes the core themes captured in JHF's award-winning, short documentary, What COVID-19 Exposed in Long-Term Care, released at the end of 2020.

The NASEM Committee on the Quality of Care in Nursing Homes held a webinar to discuss the report and its recommendations, a recording of which is available here. The report's recommendations will be incorporated into the work of JHF's Full Court Press for Senior Residential Living, the Revisiting the Teaching Nursing Home Initiative, and PA Health Funders Collaborative.
