The program promotes and protects residents' health, safety, welfare, and rights by: receiving, investigating, and resolving complaints made by or on behalf of residents; by supporting resident and family councils; and by informing governmental agencies, providers, and the general public about issues and concerns impacting residents of long-term care facilities.
The primary activities of the ombudsman program include:
-Investigating and resolving long-term care facility residents' complaints;
-Providing services to help protect resident's health, safety, welfare and rights;
-Assuring residents have regular and timely access to services provided through New York State LTCOP;
-Promoting the development of resident and family councils in individual facilities;
-Training both paid and volunteer representatives of New York State LTCOP; and
-Monitoring, analyzing, and commenting on the development and implementation of federal, state, and local long term care laws and policies.
