New Podcast Episode on How to Advocate for Your Loved One When they are Labeled a "Bad Fit"

August 05, 2021

A new episode of the Pursuing Quality Long-Term Care podcast is now available. When facilities tell residents and their families that they are "not a good fit" or encourage antipsychotic medications, often families feel pressured and aren't sure how to advocate for their loved ones. In this conversation, we first hear from Kathy, a family member who went through this experience with her mother. We then speaks with Tony Chicotel from California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform (CANHR), about steps family members can take, the specific rights nursing home residents have, and how families can work with facilities to ensure their loved one receives quality long-term care.
