You need to understand that the right path isn't always an easy one. Be prepared to be fired for your actions. Facilities do not like whistle blowers or tattle tales. I know there are laws to protect whistle blowers....do not count on them to help you.
You can contact your local Bord of health, the state ombudsman, medicare and the medicare fraud line, your states elder abuse line, and if you re accredited by The Joint Commission....you can file a report with them.
