What Legal Rights Do Nursing Home Residents Have?
The rights of the elderly and nursing home residents have been given special protection by federal and state laws. In 1987, Congress passed the Nursing Home Reform Act, which requires each state to pass regulations that protect the rights of residents receiving care at these facilities. In addition to these laws, senior citizens have certain rights addressing their health care. Read more about your rights.
