Dinowitz passes nursing home transparency bills in state senate & assembly


In the wake of the ongoing controversy regarding Governor Andrew Cuomo’s “void” of reporting COVID-19 fatalities in statewide nursing homes, Bronx assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz just passed new legislation in both the assembly and senate to expand transparency in such care facilities.

Though, this legislation predates the pandemic back to 2019 and focuses on having all New York nursing homes display their most recent “star” inspection ratings from the U.S. Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services for all to see.
