Nursing Home Monitors was formed in 1995 by family members of nursing home residents who witnessed, first hand, the pervasive substandard care and dangerous conditions in the nation’s nursing homes.
The group set out to find the causes for the lack of accountability and has been working to improve conditions ever since.
An all volunteer, non-profit, 501 (c) (3) organization, Nursing Home Monitors is supported solely by private contributions.
- To empower nursing home residents, prospective residents, their families and the community by educating and offering assistance with problems of care in the nursing home setting
- To hold the nursing home industry accountable by exposing bad practices in specific nursing homes
- To hold the oversight agencies accountable by seeing that they follow guidelines for conducting surveys, complaint investigations and enforcement of regulations
- To hold legislators accountable by exposing them when they support laws detrimental to nursing home residents
- To see that nursing home residents do not lose their rights as US citizens because they are living in a nursing home
