Arlington Nursing Home Discharge Lawyer

Most families assume that when a loved one is placed in a nursing home or assisted living facility, he or she will be cared for properly — and he or she will be able to retain a place in that facility as long as is necessary. Sometimes a facility makes a decision that has a serious impact on the life of a resident and his or her family. An elder law attorney can help resolve such situations.

Certain federal laws and state regulations address when and how a senior or a disabled person can be discharged from a nursing home or assisted living facility. The Arlington lawyer at Gene Robinson Law, PLC, can help you understand how these laws and regulations apply to your concerns.

Helping Family Members Get The Care They Need

Our firm provides guidance to families of persons who live in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. As your attorney, I can help you pursue proper care for your loved one by:

  • Responding to an eviction notice
  • Exploring possibilities for getting a family member back into a place where he or she has been living
  • Explaining your "bed hold" rights, which refer to a person's right to return to a facility
  • Finding a solution if a nursing home insists on discharging a resident because he or she has hospice care or because he or she is reportedly no longer safe in their facility
  • Writing letters to a nursing home, or writing letters of appeal to a circuit court
  • Dealing with other issues that impact disabled and elderly persons

When a care facility makes a mistake, the help of a lawyer may be needed right away. We are experienced with difficult cases that require prompt action.
