More Nursing Home Inspectors Coming Soon

Comments Off

Today the Department of Aging and Disability Services announced that they will be hiring 35 new nursing home investigators. These investigators are expected to expedite the states response to reported incidents that occur at nursing homes.

The agency says that they respond to 99 percent of the most serious complaints in less than 24 hours; however, they do admit that about a third of lower level complaints do not get a response within the required 14 response period.

Hopefully the new employees will improve response time for those who are injured or experience other incidents at nursing home facilities.
