Visit Report – Lørenskog Municipality, Rolvsrudhjemmet and Lørenskog Nursing Home

In January 2022, Lørenskog Municipality was informed that the Parliamentary Ombud would visit nursing homes in the municipality during 2022. The visits were carried out on 8-9 March 2022.

Lørenskog Municipality has two nursing homes: Lørenskog Nursing Home and Rolvsrudhjemmet. The nursing homes are run by the municipality and organised under the department of “Helse, mestring og omsorg”.

We visited a secluded department in each nursing home: the Krydderhagen department at Lørenskog Nursing Home and Department A at Rolvsrudhjemmet.

During the visit, we examined four thematic areas at the core of our mandate: exiting restrictions and retention, compulsory healthcare, the risk of inadequate or incorrect medical follow-up, and the nursing home’s effort to protect the residents against violence and abuse.
