Nursing Home Residents Have Rights

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Nursing home residents in Florida have legal rights guaranteed by Florida law. Some of these rights include the right to adequate and appropriate health care, as well as adequate and appropriate support services, like assistance with activities of daily living like eating, getting dressed, and being active. When these rights are violated, nursing home residents can be injured or worse.

Signs that a loved one may have been deprived of these rights include bedsores, fall injuries, malnutrition, dehydration, unexplained injuries, poor hygiene, and medication errors.
