What Is Nursing Home Abuse?
From cruel treatment to poor living conditions, nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms. But residents can’t always communicate when there are issues with the care they receive, and it’s often up to family members to watch for signs of abuse.
Visit our What Is Nursing Home Abuse? page to learn about common signs of nursing home negligence.
Nursing Home Resident and Family Member Rights
From the right to privacy to the right to have visitors, it’s important to be aware that nursing home residents have legal rights protecting them from abuse, neglect, and cruel treatment. When care facilities violate these rights, they can be held accountable for their negligence. Check out our Nursing Home Residents’ Rights page to learn more about North Carolina’s Bill of Rights for Nursing Home Residents.
Residents’ family members also have rights, such as the right to be notified within 24 hours of injuries, changes in condition or treatment, and transfers. To learn more about your rights as legal representative or next of kin, visit our Family Member Rights page.
