‘Resident Rights Month’ focus in October

Across the state, Oregonians living in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities had what State Long-Term Care Ombudsman Fred Steele hopes will be considered a very successful Residents’ Rights Month, recognized each October.

This month has seen considerable strides taken by Oregon leadership and partners towards enhancing the respect and dignity that should be afforded every Oregonian living in long-term care, said a press release, specifically in numerous pieces of legislation passed in the 2017 Oregon Legislature.
