Elderly Hoosiers Get Protection

Protecting the elderly in Indiana is the idea behind legislation gaining traction in the general assembly.

It would require all of Indiana’s nursing homes to install sprinkler systems.

Proposals for comprehensive fire prevention in nursing homes are contained in two nearly identical bills in the House and Senate and unanimously passed in each chamber.

Both bills would require full sprinkler systems in the homes by 2012.
