What is a legitimate and legal nursing home discharge? How does a long-term care community avoid an unfortunate discharge scenario, or how do we get it done the right way?
As a family member, how can you protect your loved one throughout a nursing home’s eviction process?
What are the resident’s rights? What are the important questions to ask and proper answers to anticipate? Where to find helpful information and resources? What can be done to contest or appeal a discharge?
Chien Hung, Program Director of VOYCE will present this session to help explain these important issues and to answer questions on residents’ rights, the legal issues of leaving a facility, and what you can do to support a loved one who might be thinking about leaving a facility.
