Choosing the Right Nursing Home Facility
One of the best ways to avoid nursing home neglect or abuse is to select
a reputable facility for your loved one. There are a few ways that you
can ensure that the place you have selected is the right option.
When touring potential nursing homes, ask yourself the following:
Do the building and grounds seem clean and well-kept?
What is the overall demeanor of the residents and staff?
Does the staff know the residents by name?
What is the ratio of staff members to residents?
Does the nursing home in question have insurance?
Are there any unpleasant odors or other signs of poor hygiene?
What is the condition of the food? How does it look and taste?
Are there any available activities for residents?
Before selecting a nursing home, you can also look up its star rating.
Many elder care facilities are rated on an annual basis, which can help
you in your decision-making process. Another thing to keep an eye out
for is whether or not the nursing home attempts to add an arbitration
clause into its fine print. An arbitration clause limits the home’s
liability in the event of abuse or neglect. It’s wise to ask yourself
why a facility would feel the need to include such a clause if they truly
stand behind their doctors, nurses, and other staff members.
