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.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
