On December 15, 2015, during the initial tour on the second floor while being accompanied by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), a male resident was dressed in high heels, an ankle length skirt and a bra which could be seen through the backside of his shirt and had long uncombed hair and an unshaven face with a ¼ inch facial stubble. The resident stated he was going downstairs for coffee and gave a female name when asked his name. The resident stated he attends activities but does not go to any psychosocial groups. The resident was seen to wear the same clothes, remained unshaven with uncombed long hair during the following 2 days of this inspection.

The resident prefers to be called by a female name. The facility would give him donated female clothes to wear. The LPN stated that the resident has expressed the desire to remove is facial stubble and body hair but only wants to use cream hair removal. The LPN stated that she asked the Director of Nursing who stated that the cream removal would require supervision when used.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
★★★★★
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
★★★★★
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
★★★★★
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
