New York nursing home malpractice laws

There are both New York State and USA federal laws that regulate how nursing homes operate to ensure the safety and well-being of all residents. These laws include things like how big the facility should be, number of beds provided, licenses they need to hold, what regulations staff need to follow, and more. 
 

There are rights afforded to every nursing home resident in New York, such as:
 

  • Information about fees and services must be given in writing prior to a resident moving in

  • Facilities must have respect for residents 

  • Facilities should allow residents to live with dignity in a comfortable living environment

  • Residents are to be allowed freedom from being restrained

  • Residents should have the ability to choose activities, schedules, and other preferences

  • Residents should be free from suffering abuse

  • Residents should be free to make independent decisions

  • Residents are entitled to quality care and treatment without discrimination

  • Residents are entitled to secure storage of their property

  • Residents should be allowed to choose the day and time of their visitors, with some restrictions

  • There should be a complaint procedure in place that is easy for residents to use

  • Residents should be able to exercise all of their rights without fear of retaliation

 

In New York, we have something called the Patient Abuse Reporting Law.
 

This law requires that:
 

“Staff of nursing homes and hospitals are required to report suspected instances of "abuse, mistreatment, and neglect" in order to protect the health and safety of persons residing in nursing homes. If there is reasonable cause to suspect that abuse, mistreatment and neglect has occurred in the nursing home, it needs to be promptly reported to the Department. The failure of licensed health care personnel to report instances of physical abuse, mistreatment and neglect for patients who are residents of nursing homes is professional misconduct subject to a civil penalty.”
 

Most common types of nursing home abuse

Physical abuse isn’t the only type of nursing home abuse. Other types of nursing home abuse include nursing home neglect, abandonment, emotional abuse, nursing home financial abuse, and nursing home sexual abuse.
