Welcome!
This is the "unofficial" website for the Harris County Long Term Care Volunteer Ombudsmen

Under the federal Older Americans Act, every state is required to have an Ombudsman program that addresses complaints and advocates for improvements to the long term care system.  An Ombudsman can assist you with finding a facility, what to do to get quality care and assist with complaints.

In Praise of Nursing Homes:
  Much has been said and written about the nursing home care situation. Much legislation is passed.
  Yet, the perception persists: "I would rather die than go into a nursing home."
Nursing homes are a community resource, paid mostly by taxpayers dollars. The laws, rules, and oversight is done in a mixed system: politically corrupt  and workers who want to do a good job but are intimidated to be passive, not make waves.
  The answer really is simple. By law every nursing facility can have a resident council and a family council. The resident council isn't really effective because most patients/residents are so sick they can't function with daily living.
   The family council (should be called Community Council) has potential to resolve concerns. It should be composed of community persons, retired alert caring persons in the community of which there are many. Also to be involved are persons who visit the nursing home looking out for their loved ones.
  80 (R) SB 131 spells out the clout family councils have. They could network with the facility management, with the Ombudsman agency, the Department of Aged/Disabled, and the legislators in the district where the facility is located.
   A person with a concern could come to a monthly meeting of the family council, or email their concern to the administrator with a cc to the Ombudsman and Family Council for their involvement. No longer would they be alone with their concern or have to wait a long time for an investigation where only 10% of concerns are substantiated.
This is a community call to action.

NURSING HOME COMPARE WEBSITE UPDATE


I was told the following by a nursing home area supervisor:


The web site Nursing Home Compare is in the process of being eliminated. 
There is a quota where the Feds allow only a certain number of stars for each category.  Like a quota for 5 stars, 4, 3,2,1.  According to him  a 1 star facility is more likely because of the quota rather than the problems at the facility.

Is there any credence to what he says?

From the National Citizens Coalition for Nursing Home Reform--Washington, D.C., (now called The Consumer Voice)

The answer to your question is no.

Nursing Home Compare is not being eliminated. It is being improved considerably by the passage of the health reform law. Next year, people will be able to find a lot more information about a nursing home on Nursing Home Compare—who the owners and managers are; the number and type of complaints filed against it; how its expenses are distributed between care and administration. In addition, consumers will be able to link to  survey reports online and read exactly what surveyors recorded about each of its deficiencies. And in a few years, there will be accurate information about the ratio of direct care staff to residents on the website and what the facility’s turnover and retention rates are.
 
The Five Star Rating System is not being eliminated either, although the quality measures are being dropped from it temporarily because the resident assessment data is changing this fall. He is right that facilities are ranked according to a curve, but a 1-star facility is at the bottom of the heap any way you slice it. Only difference is, if the curve system were eliminated, a lot more nursing homes would fall to the bottom.
