Nursing Home Advocacy

Decisions about nursing facility care typically must be made in a time of crisis, such as when a loved one must be transferred from a hospital for rehabilitation and possible long-term care. In this scenario, families have little time to review options or to educate themselves about residents’ rights and how to choose a facility that provides quality care.

Most people are unaware that there are state and federal laws that protect residents from unlawful admission and discharge practices, insure resident choice and dignity, and require that nursing facilities engage residents in making decisions about their care. We have expertise in all aspects of long-term care regulation and can make sure you are well-informed about admission procedures and contracts, resident rights, and a variety of other issues that might arise regarding nursing home care.
