Watch: HHS Panel on Health and Safety in Group Homes

February 21, 2018

On February 7, 2018, a panel of experts from across the Department of Health and Human Services discussed workable, holistic solutions that states can use to protect the health and safety of residents living in a group home setting.

A key point in the discussion with panelists representing the HHS Office of Inspector General, Administration for Community Living, Office for Civil Rights, and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services was that group homes provide critical services and greater independence in the community for people with disabilities. However, it is crucial that these individuals receive safe, quality care and are treated with respect.

Watch the full panel discussion or highlights from the discussion.

This discussion comes on the heels of the joint report, Ensuring Beneficiary Health and Safety in Group Homes Through State Implementation of Comprehensive Compliance Oversight, which provides states a toolbox for better health and safety outcomes for residents in group homes.
