Nursing Home Abuse

Many common nursing home practices are, in fact, illegal. In order to receive the best possible quality of care, a resident or resident’s family member should be familiar with the protections of the Federal Nursing Home Reform Law and understand how to use the law effectively. Here is a resource that can help consumers and advocates alike navigate the legalities of nursing home practices, and offer practical tips on how to resolve issues that come up. Justice in Aging has updated their guide, 20 Common Nursing Home Problems and How to Resolve Them, and they are making it available as a free download to anyone who needs it.
