 NURSING HOMES

Florida has many elderly citizens, many nursing homes, and fortunately, one of the strongest laws protecting nursing home residents in the country.  Florida laws grant to nursing home residents a long list of rights.   Among the most important rights are the right to receive adequate medical care, therapeutic and rehabilitative services, privacy, courtesy, dignity, protection from other residents, and the right to be free from mental or physical abuse. 

If a nursing home resident’s rights are violated, the resident or the resident's family or guardian may bring a claim under Florida's nursing home law for actual and punitive damages, and attorney's fees.  

Here are some useful nursing home links:

Florida's Nursing Home Liability Statute
This link will take you to a copy of part of Florida's nursing home statute which sets out the complete list of residents' rights.   

Florida Nursing Home Watch List
Florida Nursing Home  Watch List is published by the Florida  Agency for Health Care Administration to assist consumers in evaluating the quality of nursing home care in Florida. The Watch List reflects facilities that meet the criteria for a "conditional" status.

Florida Nursing Home Guide
The Guide to Nursing Homes in Florida is published by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. The Guide lists nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, hospital-based skilled nursing facilities and continuing care retirement communities in Florida by region and county. The Guide offers tips in selecting a nursing home and questions to ask when choosing a facility and also includes facility-specific comparative information.

Nursing Home Checklist (Medicare Publication)

Nursing Home Compare (Medicare Publication)
