Long Term Care Assistant Project staff attorney Anne Haffner appeared on Baltimore’s WBAL-TV yesterday evening in a news segment about a client threatened with involuntary discharge from a nursing home. “This is a really tragic case,” Anne said on camera about her client, a 53-year-old woman with multiple sclerosis who could get kicked out over an outstanding $2500 bill. The good news: After talking with WBAL investigative reporter Barry Simms, the nursing home agreed to let the woman stay as Anne tries to get a judgment against the client’s ex-husband, who stopped paying $300 a month alimony (that was turned over to the nursing home).
