The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care recently announced the results of its 2010 election at the 35th Annual Meeting and Conference. The new leadership elected to the Leadership Council included Chicago injury attorney Steven Levin of Levin & Perconti. The Leadership Council is responsible primarily for providing input on long-term care issues related to the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care organization’s policy and programmatic agendas. The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, originally founded as the National Citizens’ Coalition for Nursing Home Reform in 1975 by Elma Holder. The long-term care rights organization represents the consumer voice at the national level for quality long-term care, services, and supports. They work to advocate for public policies that support quality care and quality of life responsive to consumers’ needs in all long-term care settings. They also empower and educate consumers and families with the knowledge and tools they need to advocate for themselves. The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care also trains and supports individuals and groups that empower and advocate for consumers of long-term care. Additionally, they promote the critical role of direct-care workers and best practices in quality-care delivery.
Chicago nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers appreciate the work that the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care performs in developing national policy. Our Illinois nursing home law firm has emerged as one of the nation’s most recognized and respected leaders in the area of nursing home negligence. As shown by Steven Levin’s election to the Leadership Council, our firm is leading the charge to make a difference both in the courtroom and outside of it. We want to create an environment where substandard care will not be tolerated because when you place a loved one in the care of a nursing home, you expect and deserve that their needs will be met and they will be cared for.
