Ohio House bill would allocate $615M to nursing homes

The Ohio House passed legislation Dec. 1 that would provide nursing homes with $615 million, cleveland.com reported.

The legislation would give supplemental funds to nursing homes using $204 million in state funds and $411 million in federal dollars. The bill passed the House in the wake of lobbyist proposals to help nursing homes offset operating costs. The bill now heads to the state Senate.

Forty percent of the money goes through the funding formula for nursing homes set by state law. The other 60 percent goes to homes that meet incentives for four quality of care health outcomes: rates of residents who experience pressure ulcers, urinary tract infections, lost movement ability and catheter insertion.
