In response to pending legislation requiring nursing homes to have adequate help. That will not solve anything. The quality of help has more to do with quality of care. I spent several weeks in a nursing home doing physical therapy. It takes a special kind of person to deal with patients on a daily basis. Those kind of care givers I commend. Before legislation passes consider the kind of help needed. Is it just a job or does the potential employee have genuine desire to work with people that have all kinds of physical problems they can't help?
