Kentucky’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, which works to improve nursing home residents’ care and quality of life, handles thousands of complaints every year. If you have a concern or complaint over the care of your loved one in a nursing home, you’ll want to speak to a Louisville nursing home abuse attorney to see what legal route you should take.
5 Most Frequent Complaints the Ombudsman Program Receives
- food issues (quality, quantity, variation and choice of food);
- the administration of medicines;
- the discharge of residents (inadequate discharge/eviction);
- building hazards and facility equipment; and
- staff members’ poor attitude and lack of respect for residents.
After you’ve filed a complaint with Kentucky’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, they will confidentially investigate the case and share their findings with you. They’ll explain your options, and then work with you to take action in protecting the safety and well-being of your loved one.
In addition to working with a Kentucky ombudsman, when a resident’s rights have been violated and he or she has undergone abuse by caregivers, you can also speak to a Louisville nursing home abuse attorney to see what kinds of options there are in seeking restitution.
