If you live in a nursing home, assisted living or any other type of long-term care facility, you have certain legal rights. These rights define not just the medical care you should receive, but also your rights to make choices, the way you should be treated and more. These rights are protected under both federal and state laws.

At PKSD, we not only celebrate resident rights. We defend them. Our experienced nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers are deeply committed to protecting residents in long-term care. We are also dedicated to holding accountable any party who knowingly seeks to deprive residents of any of their rights.

Follow us on social media as we feature residents’ rights throughout the month of October.
