Summary:

Prompted by a resident question at the VOICES Forum in 2005, Connecticut’s Long Term Care Ombudsman Program (LTCOP) initiated a statewide work group and also commissioned the University of Connecticut Health Center to study Fear of Retaliation in skilled nursing facilities.  That study concluded that Retaliation and the Fear of Retaliation is a reality in any supportive housing situation.   Retaliation can be either egregious or subtle; many forms of retaliation may not even be recognized by residents or staff.   Therefore, as one part of a comprehensive awareness initiative, LTCOP designed the Voices Speak Out Against Retaliation training video to acknowledge that Fear of Retaliation is a reality for individuals living in skill nursing facilities.  It is recommended that a facilitated discussion follow the video.
