LeadingAge and the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living applaud the introduction of H.R. 6986, the Nursing Home Workforce Quality Act.

Sean Duffy (R-WI) for his leadership on a long-overdue initiative that will support nursing homes’ efforts to train staff and provide the highest quality of care to older adults.

The legislation introduced modifies the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training lock-out mandated by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987 (OBRA). It eliminates the statute’s rigid provisions and grants CMS greater flexibility in reinstating providers’ valuable CNA training programs.
