The program will reinforce that both state and federal resident’s rights are still in full force and effect, and how to navigate interactions/communications with nursing homes, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, to ensure that resident are receiving the best care possible. The program will also provide an update on the current CMS and NYS Department of Health guidelines on visitation, including “compassionate care visits”. I will also discuss what can be done if a family feels the nursing home is not being responsive and their loved one is at risk.
