To Let Out People with Disabilities Needlessly Living in Nursing Homes in Massachusetts

This petition had 168 supporters


By signing this petition, you will force state agencies to act. Thousands of New Yorkers with disabilities have been shipped across state lines and are now languishing in nursing homes in Massachusetts. New York often pays these out-of-state institutions twice the rate it pays its own in-state facilities, making the care for people with disabilities big business in Massachusetts and other states. Isolated from their families and other support systems, these displaced New Yorkers are vulnerable to abuse and neglect. Even worse, they often are trapped in a court system that won't let them out.
