3 Strikes, You're Out

Modesett Williams - Monday, February 16, 2015

For years now, Texas has consistently ranked among the worst states when it comes to nursing home quality. Recognizing this deficiency, Texas lawmakers have proposed a "3 strikes rule" that would revoke the license of and shut down any nursing home cited with three federal-deficiencies. The conditions of the legislation are that the offenses would have to take place on separate dates, and that the offenses would have to occur within a 24 month period. 


Proponents of the legislation argue that the 3 strike rule would make nursing homes more conscious about their conditions and encourage managers to appropriately handle their staff. However, there are oppositions to the legislation. It has been argued that if a nursing home's license were to be revoked, the individuals living in the home could face difficulties finding a facility to accept them. Regardless of the arguments against the legislation, the lawmakers have spurred and welcomed a much-needed discussion on what Texas can do to improve the quality of care in nursing homes.
