Gimmie All Your Money. Now Get Out.

Pay for Elderly CareMark this post.  Look at this news story from New Jersey.  A year from now this will be a common theme amongst nursing homes and long-term care facilities throughout the country… we are seeing just the beginning of this trend to make nursing homes and long-term care facilities as profitable as possible in the face of slimming budgets and corporate ownership.

Its no secret that Medicare and private-pay residents are far more lucrative for facilities that Medicaid recipients.  As budgets for nursing homes and long-term care facilities begin to tighten and people live longer than ever, it only a matter of time before facilities evict those less lucrative residents.

Now facilities can not order you out of the facility on a whim.  Strict removal protocols must be followed.  If you believe that the facility evicting you based on your economic situation, you should contact your state ombudsman immediately.

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.
