My fiancée comes everyday to visit me and last month we both witnessed an elderly man being abused and I did make a report and also contacted the state. Ever since then I'm being referred to as a snitch. Now every other week there making a new rule for my fiancée (A visitor). First week was we have to have visits in the dining room not in my room. My roommate gets out for breakfast and returns after dinner. Next we can no longer eat in the dining room when he brings me something. What's next he can't visit me anymore. He is on my list that he can take me out on passes and he does escort me to doctor appointments and I'm feeling we're being targeted against. I've asked for these conditions in writing and I'm told they don't need to do that. Any information to handle this would be greatly appreciated.

A nursing home is considered the residents home. You have rights and they have booklets with these rights. I agree, report it.

Contact the Ombudsman for your facility ASAP. If you don't know who that is call the NY State Office of Ombudsmen at 1-800-342-9871.
