Understanding Nursing Home Abuse Laws in New York

New York provides a special document to nursing home residents titled, “Your Rights as a Nursing Home Resident and Nursing Home Responsibilities.” This document sets forth various rights for nursing home residents, including their right to enjoy quality care without discrimination, protection of their money and private property, participation in activities within the organization, and exercise of their rights without fear of punishment. If any of these rights are breached, the nursing home resident may have grounds for filing a complaint and seeking compensation.

Common types of nursing home abuse include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial exploitation
  • Sexual abuse
  • Neglect

Nursing home abuse or neglect may involve improper medication, dehydration, serious falls, bedsores (pressure ulcers and decubitus ulcers), and self-inflicted injuries caused by improper care. The Jericho nursing home abuse attorneys at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. are sensitive to all the issues surrounding nursing home abuse and will provide caring and knowledgeable guidance.
