About the Program 
Over the course of the past year, COVID-19 has cast nursing homes and other living facilities into the spotlight. State of Connecticut’s Long Term Care Ombudsman Mairead Painter and Attorney Julia M. Brown will discuss the rights of residents and effective methods of advocating for residents from nursing home admission through to discharge.  

You Will Learn  The nursing home admission process-tips and traps for the unwary  About bed holds and readmissions-why protecting that nursing home bed is critical  The importance of care plan meetings-the key to getting good care  About discharges-wrongful discharge, advocacy steps to delay discharge, and ensuring safe discharge  About advocacy in assisted living facilities and nursing homes and how they differ  About COVID-19 related guidance and any current state executive orders
