Making the decision to find a nursing home or care facility for a loved one is never easy. In addition to knowing that they may struggle with the idea of no longer living independently, you also may worry about the type of care they’ll receive under someone else’s watch.
At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, we know that most nursing homes provide great care for residents and are attentive to their needs. However, we also know that some are lacking when it comes to staffing, training, or resident care.
All nursing home residents in Texas are granted several important rights to protect them from harm, abuse, or neglect, which include:
- The right to dignity and respect
- The right to freedom of choice
- The right to privacy and confidentiality
- The right to participation in care
- The right to transfers and discharges
- The right to information
- The right to file complaints
If you notice anything unusual about your loved one’s nursing home or care providers, trust your gut feeling, as there’s a good chance that the facility is in violation of one of these rights.
Our team of Texas nursing home abuse attorneys are here to answer your questions and address your concerns about potential nursing home abuse and neglect.
