Indiana’s 1135 Waiver Request - Read Article

Below are links for nursing homes to register with the ISDH EMResources. This will allow facilities to update daily their PPE supplies. This will also allow ISDH to better assess and distribute PPE as new supplies come in and to help when they are short. The State wanted to pass along that they understand how difficult this time has been for LTC communities and their employees, and it is appreciative of the healthcare providers in the State.
