LONG TERM CARE OMBUDSMAN AVAILABLE
Did you know that the local Ombudsman is available to advocate for residents of long-term care and residential facilities? The primary purpose of the Ombudsman is to promote and protect the resident rights guaranteed to residents under federal and state law. During this time of nursing home and other facility visitation restrictions, please know that Long Term Care Ombudsman services are still available to residents. While ombudsmen are restricted from visiting facilities, you can still talk with the ombudsman in your area via telephone or email.
