I have decided I know the best referral source for Virginia Nursing homes.
Want to know who I think you should call when you need to pick a good nursing home?
Call an emergency room nurse or doctor.
I bet they can tell you which nursing homes they see patients from all the time.
I bet they can tell you who they think neglects their patients or on the flip side, who provides good care.
I bet you could also ask if they have ever seen patients from a handful of nursing homes and their silence would be a great recommendation.
I spent this weekend with an old friend who is an internal medicine physician right now and when I told her the kind of law I practiced, her response spoke volumes.
Want to know who provides appropriate wound care?
Who monitors their patients?
Want to know who has appropriate staff on hand?
Go to your local Emergency room and ask. They may not want to tell you but I am sure they have an opinion.
