Tell Gov. Wolf’s Administration and your legislators you support 4.1

In August the Department of Health is holding a public comment period on its proposal to raise the state staffing standard to 4.1 hours of direct care per resident per day. Current regulations, which haven’t been touched in 25 years, are 2.7 hours. We have 30 days to show we overwhelmingly support 4.1.
