Just like last year, Mississippi’s nursing home industry has better lobbyists than Mississippi’s elderly and afflicted nursing home patients. Just like last year, legislation that would have required nursing homes to carry a minimum $500,000 in liability insurance died. Just like last year, the Mississippi HealthCare Association argued that legislation mandating minimum liability insurance for the state’s nursing homes, personal care homes and assisted living facilities was unnecessary.
