    I would like to comment on the level of care and the abuse I have witnessed at the Golden Living Center where I was employed as a Charge Nurse.
    I can tell you this, with the full knowledge of the D.O.N. and the Administrator, substandard patient care given by some of the CNA’s is known and as I was fired for trying to make two CNA’s do their job instead of sitting for hours watching TV and eating.
    Call bells ringing, patients screaming, I told the D.O.N. what i had planned to do in the event this occured again, she aknowledged it. When i put my plan to get these CNA’s away from the extended visits to the employee lounge and the TV and to the floor to do their work. The one CNA told me “I will have your job” and she did. You have the intestinal fortitude to listen to the rest before the commissioner of labor has my phone interview so you might rectify this You have my email.
    The level of care provided by these two protected CNA’s are appalling and the Directors permit it. Want to hear more Email me

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
