We Protect Texas Nursing Home Residents’ Rights

Texas has a growing senior population and some of that population may need professional care in a nursing home or assisted living facility. It’s also important to realize that seniors have protected rights in the state of Texas. Your Dallas, TX nursing home abuse lawyer knows the rights that your loved one has and will be able to identify what rights were violated. Let’s take a look at some of the rights listed on the Resident’s Bill of Rights.

  • A resident has all the rights, benefits, responsibilities, and privileges granted by the Constitution, and laws in the country and state.
  • Be free from physical and mental abuse, corporal punishment, and physical and chemical constraints.
  • Participate in social, religious, or community groups.
  • Be treated with respect, consideration, and recognition of their individuality.
  • Have a safe and decent living environment.

These are just a handful of rights that your loved one has—and nursing homes need to abide by them. However, abusive nursing home environments do exist and put their residents in danger of injury, worsening their health condition, or death.

When your loved one’s rights are violated, you deserve to take a stand with them. That’s where our nursing home abuse attorneys can help. We’ll fight for justice for your loved one.
