The Keystone Of The Nursing Home: Nurses

Too often we report on the poor conduct of nursing home staff.  This video should be a reminder to the quality people working hard in nursing homes across the country to provide compassionate care to residents. Thank you.

    I am a nusrsing home worker (CNA) at the New Jersey Veteran’s Home of Paraus, I have been doing this for the past (18) eighteen years. I have to admit that with all the obstacles that goes with working at a job that is so physical and pays so little my only disappointment is the disrespect that is given to the care givers from patience, family members and most of all management and anyone whom believe they have a higher title thn a nurses aide. A nurses aide is told to always report abuse whenever they witness this happening to a residence but , believe me only if it accusee is a black or someone of minority ethnicity it is treated with priority. Plus when the word abuse is uttered (for some reason) people associate this with the direct care giver(nurses aide) On May 16, 2009 I witness a volunteer abusing a resident and spoke up about it and ended up getting retaliaton from management. Yes, I now have 7 days to serve due to my respect for doing the right thing. See people it is very often heard in the news about the nurses aide who abuse and automatically everyone expects to see a black person as the accuser, but if a black person is standing in the midst of the abuse and report the get retaliated aginst, because at the New Jersey Vetran’s home of Paramus being a nurses aide you are iliterate, and is less than a human being and so and so being treated as less than a person is fostered in this nursing home.I know of a fact this behavior is very prominent within nurising home community, and need to stop , which starts at the top with management. Is this nursing home the only one (State Facility) P.S. for anyone who cares I am not iliterate during my eighteen years of service I did go to school and obtain my B.S in Criminal Justice minored in Paralegal Studies Bus. Admin. and s presently persuing my Masters in Management (Criminal Jusitce)

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.
