Pennsylvania invests $14M in nursing homes

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is giving $14.2 million to 127 long-term care facilities to improve care quality for residents, it said March 28.

The grants were awarded through the Long-Term Care Quality Investment Program to facilities enrolled in the state's quality improvement work initiative. The monies, which come from the CDC, were awarded based on factors such as the social vulnerability index, number of Medicaid days and number of residents with Supplemental Security Income.

The funds are meant to improve workforce development, staff retention and infrastructure that supports infection control and emergency preparedness, according to the department release. The state budget also proposes $1.9 million to be invested into regulatory oversight.
