Oklahoma Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Lawyers

Nursing Home Bill of Rights

People over 55 years old have special rights. An elderly citizen has rights even if they live in a nursing home. Often, the very people who violate the rights of nursing home residents are responsible for caring for the victim's day-to-day needs. Elders in nursing homes are extremely vulnerable to violations of their rights because they are medically frail and often have mental impairments, making them powerless against abusive behavior.

Oklahoma nursing home residents do not have to endure violations of their rights. Nursing homes facilities are required by law to assure that nursing homes receiving Medicaid funds "implement and enforce" the Rights of the Elderly. Some of The Rights of the Elderly include:

If a resident is unable to carry out activities of daily living, the nursing home must provide the necessary services for the resident to maintain good nutrition, grooming, and personal hygiene.
