Senate Bill 119 will help protect Kentucky caregivers

By MARILYN INGRAM Paducah

EDITOR:

I have been a hospital administrator at McCracken Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for many years. I work closely with physicians, nurses and other health care providers every day and I can tell you, we all have one goal in mind, to provide the best care possible to our residents.

That's why it pains me to see trial lawyer ads all over television attacking Kentucky caregivers and painting a misleading picture about our industry. Kentucky long-term caregivers are not the negligent monsters they would have you believe. They are hardworking individuals who couldn't do what they do every day without compassion, solidarity and love for the residents they serve.

After years of debate, it is time to stick up for caregivers and put predatory trial lawyers in their place. Join me in encouraging our own Rep. Gerald Watkins and our other elected leaders in Frankfort to pass Senate Bill 119.
