State and Federal Nursing Home Laws

It can often feel like there is nowhere to turn when a loved one has been abused or neglected. You should know that there are strict laws in place that can empower you to take action on behalf of your loved one. Nursing home lawyers are aware of the details behind laws like the federal Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 and “Kathy’s Law,” a state law that defines offenses against children, disabled people and vulnerable elderly adults.

Under Kathy’s Law, a person is considered to be guilty when he or she endangers the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person by knowingly acting in a manner that is injurious to his or her physical, mental and moral welfare. A person is also guilty of endangering the welfare of a vulnerable elderly person when he or she acts with intent to injure the person and causes injury, recklessly causes injury to the person or subjects the person to sexual contact without his or her consent.

When you feel like a nursing home worker has violated Kathy’s Law or the Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987, it is vital to act. Speak with a nursing home lawyer as soon as you can. Nursing home administrators have a way of making you feel like you are over-exaggerating an issue that has impacted your loved one. The reality is that you should trust your gut instinct about any instances in which you feel a loved one has been harmed. It is likely that there is a pattern of abuse or neglect behind the suspicions that you have.

The Warning Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

There are many warning signs that can alert you that nursing home neglect and abuse are occurring in a New York facility. Here are some of the warning signs that you should always consider:

  • A facility’s past history of abuse, neglect or exploitation (which you can find out by contacting the state ombudsman’s office)
  • Missing items of your loved one
  • Depleted financial assets from a resident’s account
  • Complaints of falling
  • Poorly trained staff
  • Inadequate staffing levels
  • Development of bed sores on residents
  • Unchanged sheets and unwashed clothing
  • Unsanitary premises
  • Unsanitary food
  • Development of malnutrition or dehydration in a loved one
  • Physical wounds, scratches and bruising
  • Fractured limbs
  • Constant migraines
  • Depression and anxiety

This long list contains all of the signs that you need to know may indicate abuse or neglect is impacting your loved one. It is better to be knowledgeable about the potential ways in which your loved one could be harmed rather than to be unaware of systematic abuse that could be harming a loved one.

1 star rating

Primary concerns: There are few things that this facility has been able to do well. According to the Medicare nursing home compare tool, it scores below average in every single category.

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
