With a plea for members to pitch the recommendations to state legislators, the Guardianship Improvement Task Force has ratified its final report calling for better data and in some cases stricter oversight of Florida’s guardianship system.

The vote, at a November 15 meeting, came after task force members rejected a suggestion to step back from its proposal that hospitals and nursing homes have no say in selecting the guardian when they seek a guardianship for a patient.

The written report will be issued around the end of the month, to allow members to add any individual comments to the task force’s suggestions.
