Re: Your Rights and Protections as a Nursing Home Resident
Dear Residents and Resident Representatives at Wesley Health Care Center:
As a nursing home resident or representative, our facility is required to inform you that all residents have certain rights and protections under Federal and state law that help ensure you get the care and services you need. You have the right to be informed, make your own decisions, and have your personal information kept private.
The nursing home must tell you about these rights and explain them in writing in a language you understand. They must also explain in writing how you should act and what you’re responsible for while you’re in the nursing home. This must be done before or at the time you’re admitted, as well as during your stay.
At these links below, you will find a biannual notification handout that we are providing to all of our residents regarding those specific rights. You will find both a summary handout as well as the Bill of Rights Handbook for your review.
