Understanding Nursing Home Law

Here are a few important things you need to know about nursing home law that many assisted care facilities will not tell you. Take these into consideration when you feel you or your family member has been wronged by a nursing home or other such facility:

  • Federal law permits families and patients to assist in developing a care plan, which includes nursing home staff making reasonable adjustments to a plan to comply with the specific needs of patients. If a facility has told you that you have no rights to determine certain aspects of the care you or your loved one receive, consider contacting Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP and let us provide a free consultation to advise you on the next steps to take.
  • Nursing homes may try to manipulate family members into signing a responsible party’ clause without adequately explaining what the term means. This clause essentially states that the family of a patient is financially responsible for their administered care in the event that the patient cannot provide adequate funds. This is legal under federal and state law, but not informing the responsible party of their financial obligation is not, so be weary of this terminology in any admission agreement you sign for your family member.
  • Many nursing homes will try to evict difficult’ residents when demand for nursing home beds outstrips supply. Eviction is legally only allowed for the following reasons: failure to pay for care, a patient is deemed fit to no longer require assisted living, a patient’s needs cannot be met at the facility, a resident is endangering the health and safety of others, or if the facility is going out of business. Facilities must provide written notice of eviction, often within 30 days of discharge, along with evidence to support their decision.

Client Testimonials
  • "I first met Nick Moraitakis under the worst possible circumstances. The sudden, tragic death of my husband left me alone with a young child. Needless to say, I was in shock and emotionally paralyzed, with nothing more than unanswered questions. At a loss and nowhere to turn, a family friend recommended I contact Nick. Little did I know the impact he would have on my life. From the moment we met, I knew he was someone I could trust. At a time when I was vulnerable and scared, trust was something that was hard to come by. He immediately went to work on my case, which was a great feeling because it gave me hope. He has walked me through the entire process, answered even the most trivial of questions, and perhaps most importantly, listened to me. He has always made himself available when I have needed him and I honestly feel that my case is important and a top priority. Words cannot begin to express how invaluable Nick has been through the most difficult time in my life. Nick has gone above and beyond the call of duty for me, and for that, I am forever grateful. I have been completely devastated by my husband’s death, but now that our financial future is more secure, I can focus on what is most important: raising my daughter the way my husband and I always wanted."  -Catherine G., Atlanta, GA

  • "We were very blessed to have Glenn representing us at a very difficult time in our lives. Due to medical negligence, our son was left brain damaged and severely incapacitated. Glenn was always available to us when we needed him and he took our concerns and needs seriously. We were treated as friends not just as clients and if Glenn didn’t have an answer for us when we asked, he would tell us “I don’t have an answer for you right now, but I will find out and get back to you” and he always did. Thanks to Glenn and his assistant Konnie, we were represented with legal counsel that exceeded our expectations."  -Allen and Catherine D., Atlanta, GA

  • "The best decision you can make. If you are reading this testimonial and wondering about Nick Moraitakis: Is he a good attorney? Can he help me? Does he understand what I am going through? Will he give me the attention and time I seek? Does he know his way through the Law, in the Courts and with the Judges? Will he understand how important this case is to me? Is he honest? Does he have great integrity? … Does his staff reflect his values and professionalism? My answer YES and YES!!!! Nick Moraitakis represented me in a challenging case and at a difficult time in my life. Having him as my attorney was the best thing that could happen to me- He had my best interest in mind, he worked with me as if I was his only client and was with me all the way through!"  -Simona E., Atlanta, GA

  • "I nearly died on an operating room table and had many complications. I was referred by another law firm to Glenn Kushel. I do not regret my decision to have them represent me in this matter. They were great! They came to me, as I was unable to travel. They listened and really cared about you as a person. They always returned my calls the same day. Their legal assistant Konnie Tate is the best. Glenn and his staff got me all the compensation I was entitled to. They worked hard to make sure I could get back on my feet and take care of my children. Thank you Glenn, Konnie & staff for all your hard work."  -Rhonda H., Atlanta, GA
