AB 927 (McCarty) The Nursing Home Ownership Disclosure Act of 2015 Introduced


On February 26, 2015, Assemblymember Kevin McCarty of Sacramento introduced AB 927, a CANHR sponsored bill that directly responds to the Sacramento Bee’s remarkable three-part series in November 2014 on the performance of California nursing home chains. The series, Unmasked: How California’s Largest Nursing Home Chains Perform, exposed the troubling performance of many of these chains, the great challenges consumers face in discovering who really owns nursing homes they are considering and the Department of Public Health’s failure to keep unfit chain operators from acquiring large numbers of California nursing homes.

AB 927 would strengthen California laws governing acquisition of nursing homes, suitability requirements for operators and disclosure to the public on who owns nursing homes.
