California Nursing Home Regulations

Nursing home negligence and elder abuse are serious problems that have been addressed by the implementation of various laws and regulations governing the services and care that these nursing homes throughout California provide.

Your initial consultation is free, and we will be happy to discuss your options with you in order to assist you through this difficult time.

Nursing Home and Elder Law

There are several different bodies of law that govern nursing homes in California, including the Nursing Home Reform Act, Title 22 of the California Department of Social Services, and California's Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act. These all outline particular regulations nursing homes must abide by as well as particular rights of nursing home patients and residents. Some of the regulations include:

  • That all nursing homes provide social services, pharmaceutical and medication services, nutritional and dietary services, individual care plans for each patient, nursing services, and rehabilitative services.
  • That nursing homes provide safe living accommodations, food service, medical and dental care, planned activities, personal care, personal assistance, and supervision.
  • That nursing home residents and their families have the right to seek punitive damages and attorneys' fees for cases involving physical abuse, neglect, abandonment, isolation, or other mistreatment that results in injury to the patient.

As the resident of a nursing home, an elderly person has the right to be treated with respect and dignity as well as the right to quality care and treatment. If the person's rights are violated in any way, he or she then has the right to take legal action.
