Heath Care Fraud & Abuse in Nursing Homes:

Nursing homes and long-term health care facilities receive federal funds and in exchange they are required to comply with certain federal and state regulations and laws. These regulations and laws set out in detail the type and quality of care that residents in these facilities are to receive. Due to the many reports of nursing home abuse and neglect that surfaced in the 1980′s, in 1987 Congress passed legislation in an effort to reform nursing home practices and procedures and to set standards for the care rendered to residents. These laws were incorporated into the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987 (OBRA 1987) and is also known as the Nursing Home Reform Act.

There are a number of federal regulations that govern long term health care facilities set forth in Nursing Home Reform Act.  The basic gist of the Act is that nursing homes must provide services and care to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental and psychosocial well-being of each resident.  Additionally this care must be given based on written documentation for each resident, known as an individualized plan of care. If you have any reason to believe that someone you love has been the victim of neglect or abuse, please call us or click here to have one of our attorneys contact you.
