DRW Validates Concerns regarding Safe and Quality care in the community for RHC residents

 

Mark Stroh, Executive Director of Disability Rights Washington (DRW) has written a letter to Governor Gregoire protesting her veto of Sections 7 and 11 of SSB 5459.  Even though DRW supported SSB5459, I am pleased to see their concern regarding the Governor’s veto of these two critical sections which were put in to assure safe and quality care for our residents. 

 

Without these two sections, there are no commitments to ongoing services, continued safeguards, quality assurance and independent oversight for the health and safety of our residents. 

 

Thank you to Disability Rights Washington for validating the concerns that we, as grassroots advocates for a continuum of care for our citizens, have been highlighting in our statements to the public and our legislators.
