Under the Chapter 400 Florida Resident’s Rights Law, which is the gravamen of the complaints for nursing home neglect and abuse, a resident can bring the case, or anybody who is acting on behalf of the resident. Many times, it is an adult child of a nursing home resident who has power of attorney to handle Mom or Dad’s affairs. A power of attorney has the right to bring a nursing home resident’s rights case on behalf of the resident.

Additionally, if you have a resident who dies as a result of nursing home negligence, the personal representative of the estate brings the nursing home negligence action. Which also sounds in wrongful death.
