“My family went out for a walk yesterday at a nearby boardwalk to get some fresh air on a beautiful Mother’s Day. Everyone that we saw was being respectful of others and maintaining good distancing.

“As we walked off the boardwalk and down a side-street, we came upon an elderly woman sitting alone on a curb. We asked her if she was okay. She told told us she couldn’t be with her family on Mother’s Day, so she decided to take a walk by herself on the boardwalk. When she tired, she sat for a moment on a bench to rest. That’s when someone approached her and berated her for violating lockdown rules by sitting on a bench, so she got up and left the boardwalk and moved to a curb down by the street where we found her.

Waiving fees for occupational licensure will help spouses secure meaningful employment and make life a little easier for military families in New Jersey.”

A commission to study the health of nursing homes in the state would be created under a bill sponsored by Senator Robert Singer and approved today by the Senate. The commission would scrutinize the impact of increased hourly reimbursements on nursing homes.

Sen. Robert Singer’s legislation would establish a nine-member commission to collect and evaluate crucial data from nursing homes to study the impact of changes to Medicaid reimbursement rates. (SenateNJ.com)

“To ensure quality care for our most vulnerable residents, it’s essential that we understand what the rate changes mean to the important services provided at these facilities,” said Singer (R-30). “Have these new rates affected staffing, the cost of care for residents, or the financial stability of nursing homes? This measure will help us get the answers.”

Singer’s measure (S-51) would establish the nine-member “Impact of Medicaid Personal Care Services Reimbursement Change on Nursing Homes Study Commission” to collect and evaluate data from nursing homes, including whether any facilities closed after the effective date of the rate changes.

Under the bill, the commission is required to submit a written report to the Governor and Legislature not more than 12 months after its first meeting.

New Jersey nursing homes say they are losing more than $400 million a year. Homes providing care for Medicaid residents lose close to $50 a day for each client, according to the Health Care Association of New Jersey.
