Are there any reports or information I can request from the home before I make a decision about taking legal action?
Absolutely. The three best things you could do before deciding whether or not to place your loved one in a specific facility is research, research, and research. If you look at a facility, you’re going to get from them glossy materials singing their praises, but there’s no way for you to know what actually goes on there, unless you do the proper research. Websites, including AHCA, which is the Agency for Healthcare, as well as Nursing Home Compare, can provide you with valuable information regarding the history of these homes and citations they’ve had against them.
