Ombudsmen In Nursing Homes

Ombudsmen In Nursing HomesThe other day I posted regarding the violations nursing home inspectors commonly miss.  In defense of the likely overworked and underpaid inspectors- -their job its difficult.  They are expected to uncover nursing home safety violations and neglect at many different facilities in a single visit.  I received several messages from subscribers to our blog voicing concern over the inherent inadequacy in the inspection system.

I came across this article which details a potential solution to this problem.  I was mighty impressed with the simplicity of this idea.  For states facing budget problems and in the midst of nursing home inspector shortage this is a great solution.  The program allows nursing home residents to develop a relationship with the ombudsmen and provides the unique opportunity to monitor facilities on a daily or weekly basis.  Well done!

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.
