When Choosing a Nursing Home, Do Your Homework
Rather than simply relying on reviews or CMS’ star rating system, it is important to visit a prospective nursing home repeatedly and at different times of the day prior to agreeing to admit a loved one. When visiting, be sure to utilize all of your senses. How does the facility smell? Does it appear to be clean? Does it look like there are adequate numbers of staff in the facility? Can you hear residents calling out for help? Does the staff appear to possess good morale? Or, are employees running hectically from room to room? Additionally, when it comes time to sit down and review the admission paperwork, never agree to “arbitration” in the event a future dispute arises. You have the right under federal law to cross out the arbitration clause and refuse to sign it. Arbitration means that you waive your right to a trial by jury under the United States Constitution in the event the nursing home abuses or neglects your loved one.
