All nursing homes must comply with the Patient’s Bill of Rights. All information that the nursing home provides to the patient must be given in a manner that the patient could reasonably understand. If the patient cannot understand the information due to their condition, the information must be provided to the patient’s representative.
If a patient refuses treatment against the physician’s recommendation, the physician must determine whether the refusal prohibits the facility from providing appropriate care. This determination must be made in writing and placed in the patient’s medical record.
The nursing home must inform patients about the facility’s rules and regulations that affect care and conduct, and such rules and regulations must be posted in public places within the facility. If a patient is terminally ill, all nursing homes must allow patient’s guardians or next of kin to remain in the facility 24 hours a day.
