A note by attorney Jeffrey J. Downey: Thank you for visiting my website. Anyone who is considering the admission of a loved one into a nursing home should undertake a review of surveys or other data that will provide a snapshot of some of the issues or problems that the facility is experiencing.

You should consider personal visits of any facility you are evaluating. Read Here.
