New Podcast Episode on What to Look for and Questions to Ask as You Resume Visits in a Long-Term Care Facility

October 22, 2020

Episode 5 of the Pursuing Quality Long-Term Care Podcast is now available on iTunes. During this discussion with Steven Levin and Michael Bonamarte of Levin & Perconti law firm we talk about what you should be looking for and questions you should be asking as you resume in-person visits in a long-term care facility.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted residents of long-term care facilities and their families. In March, the federal government and most state governments ordered long-term care facilities – nursing homes and assisted living facilities – to ban all but essential healthcare workers from entering the facility. That has meant no access to family members, friends, the long-term care Ombudsman, or anyone else. Limited in-person visits are beginning in most states, marking the first time many residents and families have seen each other in more than 6 months. As you look to understand what the impact of this lock down has meant for your loved one,  listen in for suggestions of what to look for, questions to ask, and what you can do if you have concerns about your loved one’s condition.
