February 27 meeting info and report on progress in Kokua Council’s lawsuit against DOH

Report on status of Kokua Council’s legal action to require the Department of Health to post long term care inspection reports to their website

The state is violating public records law by blacking out too much information from nursing home inspection reports.—Civil Beat

judgeWe received a favorable ruling so far on one of the three counts of our complaint. For details, please see the Civil Beat report here.

Thanks to the generousity of Kokua Council donors, we will continue our arguments and get the reports posted so that families can make the best decisions when a loved one must be placed in a long term care facility.
