Protecting Your Rights in Nursing Homes
Protecting Your Rights in Nursing Homes – As with most life milestones, signing up for a nursing home means filling out a lot of paperwork. In addition to financing, rules and procedures, emergency contacts and vitamin supplements, the nursing home industry also includes sections that protect themselves from wrongful accusations. While this is a smart and prudent business strategy, in the wrong hands that tiny little print may be holding more than you actually signed up for.
When you find yourself in that difficult position, having to put your loved one in a nursing home, you are under a lot of stress and have to make a decision, a very difficult decision, quickly and the nursing industry is taking advantages of that stress. More and more nursing homes try to bury in their mission agreements–that they force you to sign–clauses that wave you or your loved one’s rights when they abuse and neglect your loved one. It’s becoming so concerning that I am trying to stop that. So we’re offering for free, for anyone in California, who is getting ready to put their loved one in a facility, to review the admission agreement to make sure that your rights are protected.
