The AARP Oklahoma Nursing Home CARE Plan became law on November 1, 2019.
This new law sets Oklahoma on a path to better care for our loved ones by:
» Preventing nursing homes from administering dangerous anti-psychotic medications to restrain residents
» Requiring informed consent and alternative treatment options prior to an antipsychotic drug being administered
» Increasing staffing and staff training at nursing homes
» Implementing a new program to make sure Oklahomans know all care options, including home-based care
We took a giant step forward during the 2019 Oklahoma legislative session in reversing years of decline in nursing home care, but the fight is not over.
We need your help now more than ever. Visit www.aarp.org/getinvolved and sign up to become an advocate today!
