Texas Nursing Home Residents’ Rights

When a resident of a nursing home is abused, their rights are being violated. Even though they’re living in a place that is owned by another party, that doesn’t mean that their rights are stripped away. They may be older and need more care so they can’t live at home or with family, but they still deserve to maintain the same dignity and their rights.

Here are some of the rights that residents of Fort Worth long-term care facilities have that need to be upheld, as outlined by the Texas Department of Aging’s Resident’s Bill of Rights:

  • The right to be free from all physical and mental abuse.
  • The right to be free of all physical and chemical restraints.
  • The right to practice their own religion.
  • The right to maintain their dignity and handle their own affairs.
  • The right to a safe and decent living environment.
  • The right to make a complaint about their treatment.
  • The right to make decisions in their treatment.
  • The right to manage their own finances or appoint their own manager of finances.
  • The right to their own records, as well as confidentiality.
  • The right to visitors and private access to a phone.
  • The right to privacy.

While these aren’t the only rights that your family member has as a resident of a long-term care facility, these are some of the most important that you should know. That way, if your loved one’s rights are being infringed upon, you will be able to recognize what’s happening and determine if they’re being abused.

When you think your loved one’s rights are being violated while in their nursing facility, you could use the help of our Fort Worth, TX nursing home abuse attorney. Our knowledge of their rights and other laws enables us to help get them the justice they deserve.
