The legislative committee has been made aware of efforts remove the right of nursing home residents from bringing action against facilities and providers for violations of residents rights.  Consumer rights have always been a high priority in civil proceedings and nursing home residents are a very vulnerable population.  To remove the right for individual and collective action against facilities which violate resident rights is a regressive measure which favors the corporation over the individual.  Please send out this request for a letter to oppose SB 2063/HB 2558.  Associated links to TN legislators are below, including a draft message.

Thanks,

Dear Representative/Senator…..

I am very concerned at a new bill recently introduced in the state legislature, SB 2063/HB 2558.   This bill restricts nursing home residents from filing complaints against facilities and providers for violation of residence rights.

 

Consumer rights have always been a high priority in civil proceedings and nursing home residents are a very vulnerable population.  To remove the right for individual and collective action against facilities which violate residents rights is a regressive measure which favors the corporation over the individual.

 

Please oppose SB 2063/HB 2558.

 

Sincerely,
