Advocating for Nursing Facility Residents Under the Revised Federal Requirements


The federal rules for nursing homes that participate in Medicare and Medicaid have been comprehensively revised, affecting requirements for admission contracts, care planning, resident rights, quality of care, transfer and discharge procedures, protections against abuse neglect, and exploitation, and other aspects of facility life.  Attorney Nancy Stone has co-authored a comprehensive article about the changes, which was published in the spring issue of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) Journal.  Below is a link to the article, which provides a guide to key issues in the federal nursing facility requirements.
