Great article on protecting our nursing home residents-

The federal government on Tuesday issued stricter requirements for COVID-19 testing in nursing homes, making routine staff testing a requirement for participation in Medicare and Medicaid and rolling out fines as high as $8,000 per instance of non-compliance.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) established the new rules as part of a larger package of data reporting requirements for hospitals and laboratories.

“These new rules represent a dramatic acceleration of our efforts to track and control the spread of COVID-19,” CMS administrator Seema Verma said in a statement announcing the requirements. “Reporting of test results and other data are vitally important tools for controlling the spread of the virus and give providers on the front lines what they need to fight it.”
