AHCA: HRW Report & Talking Points

Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

AHCA wanted to make facilities aware of a Human Rights Watch report on the use of antipsychotics in nursing centers coming out this Monday. An embargoed copy of the report has been sent to press, including The Associated Press. The AP plans on covering the report in a story that will also come out today.

In advance of the report and story, AHCA has attached talking points that may be helpful in speaking with media or other stakeholders. AHCA will keep us posted if there are other developments, including if we receive an advance copy of the report.
