Custer, Kobe, Congress discussed on The Healthcare Policy Podcast


Custer's <Speech_Male> bill with two <Speech_Male> cosponsors <Speech_Male> requesting cms <Speech_Male> to study antipsychotic <Speech_Male> prescribing <Speech_Male> practices <Speech_Male> in non nursing <Speech_Male> home. Settings, <Speech_Male> was there any other legislation <Speech_Male> related <Silence> the session <SpeakerChange> to your knowledge? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Female> I'm <Speech_Female> not. Sure. <Speech_Female> <Silence> But just you <Speech_Female> know. Just, <Speech_Female> because there's no <Speech_Female> legislation out there doesn't <Speech_Female> mean that folks <Speech_Female> are thinking about or working <Speech_Female> on on issues <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <hes> <Speech_Male> for the longer term. <Speech_Male> Okay. <Speech_Male> Okay. Thank <Speech_Male> you. I. Do have this somewhat <Speech_Male> formula <Speech_Male> a final question. I'll <Speech_Male> just throw in <Speech_Male> here and <Speech_Male> that is <hes> <Speech_Male> again formula <Speech_Male> what <Speech_Male> would you advise <Speech_Male> having studied this <Speech_Male> subject? <Speech_Male> <hes> extent <Speech_Male> that you have. What would you <Speech_Male> advise family members? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Relative <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> <hes> either <Speech_Male> admitting <Speech_Male> an overseeing their <Speech_Male> family members <Speech_Male> care nursing home <Speech_Male> facility. What what <Speech_Male> should family caregivers <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <hes> pay <SpeakerChange> attention <Speech_Female> to? <Speech_Female> I <Speech_Female> think you know <Speech_Female> our experience <Speech_Female> with Kobe has highlighted <Speech_Female> how important <Speech_Female> family members <Speech_Female> are in this whole process <Speech_Female> of overseeing <Speech_Music_Female> care for patients <Speech_Music_Female> right. So when <Speech_Music_Female> <hes> you know <Speech_Female> everything closed down <Speech_Female> in in <Speech_Female> March and families <Speech_Female> were not able <Speech_Female> to go in to see <Speech_Female> their loved ones that <Speech_Female> was critical <Speech_Female> oversight <Speech_Female> tool that <Speech_Female> was missing <Speech_Female> and so <Speech_Female> I think <SpeakerChange> the important <Speech_Female> thing to the extent people <Speech_Female> are able to <Speech_Female> really be <Speech_Female> involved in <Speech_Female> the care of their <Speech_Female> loved <Speech_Female> ones <hes> <Speech_Female> because we we <Speech_Female> know this is happening <Speech_Female> and you <Speech_Female> know making. <Speech_Female> Sure that your <Speech_Female> your loved <Speech_Female> one is getting the right <Speech_Female> care a vital <Speech_Female> support tool <Speech_Female> to exercise <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> as as <Speech_Female> caregivers <Speech_Female> So I. think <Speech_Female> that is important <Speech_Female> point and night you <Speech_Female> know a lot of a <Speech_Female> lot of this is also <Speech_Female> importance of being <Speech_Female> aware that this is <Speech_Female> an issue to begin <Speech_Female> with and and that's part <Speech_Female> of the reason that <Speech_Female> on my gosh has been so <Speech_Female> vocal about <Speech_Female> about this <Speech_Female> issue is making sure <Speech_Female> the public is aware <Speech_Music_Female> as we continue to <Speech_Music_Female> think through <Speech_Music_Female> <hes> options <Speech_Female> and you <Speech_Female> know frankly I think <Speech_Female> this. <Speech_Female> Is. Something that really needs <Speech_Female> to be handled on an <Speech_Female> administrative. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Level, but you know. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> If the trump administration <Speech_Female> was doing their <Speech_Female> their job <Speech_Female> on overseeing <Speech_Female> this <Speech_Female> report points out <Speech_Female> that maybe this would be <Speech_Female> less of an issue but <Speech_Female> you know <Speech_Female> we we <SpeakerChange> all have a <Speech_Music_Female> role in in making <Speech_Music_Female> sure that there is accountability <Speech_Music_Female> on this <Speech_Music_Female> front on. Because at <Speech_Music_Female> the end of the day, the important <Speech_Music_Female> point here is to keep <Speech_Female> patients safe <Speech_Female> <hes> and <Speech_Music_Female> families are. <Speech_Female> Aware. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> What's going <Speech_Male> on? <Speech_Male> Yes. Absolutely. <Speech_Male> So I would <Speech_Male> say in towards pay <Speech_Male> attention, correct <Speech_Male> yes. Absolutely. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> Rachel thank you for <Speech_Male> this review <Speech_Male> <hes> Mike congratulations <Speech_Male> to you and your <Speech_Male> colleagues on producing <Speech_Male> this report I will <Speech_Male> say. <Speech_Male> Obviously.

If <Speech_Male> next session next <Speech_Male> Congress, next administration <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> we could <Speech_Male> see some related legislation. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <hes> <Speech_Male> long <Speech_Male> since passed do but <Speech_Male> thank you again for your time. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Male> Thanks <SpeakerChange> for having me. <Speech_Male> Take.
