New Jersey provides portal for complaints about Nursing Home Care

To say that the care-delivery system in New Jersey’s nursing homes in 2020 has been fraught with problems and perils is, of course, an understatement. Certain facilities are just now beginning to admit new residents, and many new procedures for infection control and care delivery have to be put in place. The NJ Attorney General announced on April 16th that he is embarking on an investigation into the way that the skilled nursing facilities responded to or handled care delivery in response to COVID-19 infection. Now the State has created a form for people to use to provide complaints or information that could be useful to this investigation.  The form is a fillable PDF that you can submit electronically by clicking “submit” at the end of the form. Here it is: :  https://covid19.nj.gov/forms/ltc

It’s vital that the public file this important information so that the investigation has access to a broad spectrum of first-hand information from members of the public.
