Long-Term Care Ombudsman Podcast

Abuse & Neglect

Posted on 02/29/2024at9:22 pm

Clint Adams is joined by Long-Term Care Ombudsman Ed Hopple to discuss how long-term care Ombudsmen (non-attorney patient advocates) work to ensure the rights of residents in nursing home, assisted living, and other long-term care facilities are fully maintained. Learn about what may take place during an ombudsman’s visit, who they may speak with, and different ways they can advocate for the rights of residents or empower residents to advocate for themselves. Hear about reasons a facility may discharge or relocate a resident and steps to appeal.
