Our Areas of Practice: Maryland Lawyers
Nursing Home Neglect Lawsuit
Most nursing homes in the U.S. are certified by Medicare and Medicaid, and they must show they are in compliance with the Nursing Home Reform Act in order to receive payments from these government agencies. The Act was passed by Congress in 1987 following a study by the Institute of Medicine, which concluded that nursing home residents were being abused, neglected, and given inadequate care. The Act aims to ensure that nursing home residents are able to achieve the highest practical level of physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being.
Assisted Living Facilities
Many families choose assisted living for their loved ones who can no longer live independently and require assistance with activities of daily living (ADL) such as toileting, dressing, feeding, bathing, personal hygiene, etc. These facilities are licensed and regulated by the State. There are three levels of care, and the resident is assessed upon admission. The cost, as well as the amount of care required of the facility, increases between levels. Generally, these are cheaper than skilled nursing facilities (SNF) and provide less skilled nursing care.
Group Homes & Developmental Disability
Developmentally disabled individuals often reside in group homes or small residential homes where they live with a caregiver and other staff and sometimes a few other individuals. These homes are funded through Medicaid and coordinated between the Developmental Disability Administration, Resource or Service Coordination and the Provider.
