Nursing Home Inspectors To Seek New Jobs Following Discovery Of Dangerous Living Conditions

Cincinnati City Council members are requesting that the city get out of the nursing home inspection business following the discovery of ‘crack house’ conditions at Westside Health Center and Terrace Assisted Living Facility.  The council members suggest the investigatory responsibilities be turned over to the Ohio Department of Public Health to improve the quality of resident care at the facilities.  Safety concerns were discovered at the facilities during a police raid on March 13th.

Nursing Home Inspectors To Seek New JobsAbout time!! Nursing home inspectors have an important job to protect the safety and welfare of the facilities residents.  If the the inspectors fail to discover safety violations at these facilities, then who will?  Passing the torch on safety inspections to a state group of inspectors is similar to the inspection system used in Illinois Nursing Homes.  Read more about the proposal to remove Cincinnati Nursing Home Inspectors here.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
    ★★★★★
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
    ★★★★★
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
    ★★★★★
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
    ★★★★★
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
