Why Didn’t I Think Of This?

iStock_000004892147XSmall1As a father of an active toddler, I am well versed in the importance of keeping close tabs on him at all times.  We keep a video monitor on him to make sure he doesn’t harm himself.   Video monitoring has even gone to the streets in Chicago where police can monitor street traffic in crime ridden areas.

The time has come for monitoring to take the jump to nursing homes.  “Granny Cams” as Attorney David Terry describes in the Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Blog would be an important part of protecting our nursing home residents from nursing home abuse from nursing home employees and co-residents.

While cameras have caught abusive workers in the act, utilizing video technology as a regular part of nursing home care seems the a reasonable thing to do.  I join David’s endorsement of installing ‘granny cams’ to safeguard nursing home residents.

Hey David, can I get a cut of Granny Cam’s royalties?

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
