If you were to go to chapter 400, Florida statutes, there are residence rights enumerated and in fact the statute is called the nursing home residents rights act. Additionally, most of the nursing homes following suit with the state standards, when you sign a resident up and they give you an admission’s packet, generally the residents rights that a nursing home resident has are spelled out in the contract or the statute is alluded to. Finally those nursing homes that take Medicare for example, and all of them do because Medicare is a good payer of last resort, are subject to all sorts of code of federal regulations standards.
