At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP, we work hard to protect the rights of our clients.

Do You Know What Your Rights Are as a Nursing Home Resident In Ohio?

Once you've chosen a facility for your loved one's care, it is important that you and your loved one, if practical, become familiar with what is commonly known as the Nursing Home Residents' Bill of Rights. Embodied in the Ohio Revised Code, the Nursing Home Residents' Bill of Rights promises certain standards and items of care to residents of nursing home facilities in Ohio.

These rights include:

  • The right to a safe and clean living environment
  • The right to be free from physical, verbal, and mental abuse, and the right to be treated with courtesy and respect
  • The right to adequate and appropriate medical treatment and nursing care
  • The right to have all reasonable inquiries and requests responded to promptly
  • The right to have clothing and bed sheets changed as necessary to ensure comfort and sanitation
  • The right to unrestricted communication with the resident's family
  • The right to participate in decisions that affect the resident's life

Nursing home facilities are required to post this list of rights or to provide a copy to their residents. Knowing these rights will assist you in making certain that your loved one receives the quality of care he or she is entitled to under Ohio law. Speaking with an attorney can help you determine whether or not a violation of the Nursing Home Residents' Bill of Rights took place.
