CLTCOA would like to send a special thanks to Benson Nadell and his staff at the San Francisco LTC Ombudsman program for all of their efforts in getting this legislation passed!
SB 609 Ombudsman Willful Interference Bill, which increases the penalty for facilities who willfully interfere in the duties of a LTC Ombudsman is sitting on the Governors desk at this very moment. The bill is likely to be signed today so get ready!
Reminder- next Tuesday is the CLTCOA Board meeting and we encourage you to attend.

Our ombudsman association is worked hard on this bill and AB581 is a great victory for residents in residential care facilities who have issues concerning their care but afraid to voice them to the ombudsman for fear of retaliation. Hopefully, now they will feel more free to speak up.
Thanks everyone for your support
