Do you have evidence of misconduct involving a New Jersey nursing home or other long-term care facility during the COVID-19 outbreak?
On April 16, 2020, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced that the Office of the Attorney General had opened a statewide investigation into the high number of deaths at New Jersey’s long-term care facilities and nursing homes (LTCs) during the COVID-19 pandemic. The investigation will determine whether any individuals or entities broke the law and should face civil or criminal penalties for their actions (or lack thereof) during the outbreak.
The AG’s Office is asking for the public’s help during the early stages of the investigation. If you have firsthand knowledge of illegal activity or other misconduct involving a New Jersey-based LTC during the COVID-19 pandemic, please complete the form below. If you have any documents that demonstrate the misconduct you are reporting, you may upload them through the form. If you prefer, you can remain anonymous, but the more detailed your submission, the more helpful it will be for investigators.
Please keep in mind that this form is designed to further an ongoing statewide investigation, not to answer specific questions about an LTC or someone living at an LTC. Investigators will only contact you if they need additional information beyond what you included in your submission.
If you are seeking information about a loved one, please contact the LTC directly or file a complaint with the New Jersey Long-Term Care Ombudsman.
If you are reporting an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
