Can a nursing home evict a resident?
The short answer is yes, but the law makes it difficult. Nursing home companies can only discharge residents for the following reasons and only after giving proper notice:
- If a resident fails to make payments as agreed or their financial sources are no longer able or willing to pay;
- If a resident poses a danger to other residents;
- If a resident requires special medical treatment or attention that the facility is not capable of providing; and
- If the resident’s condition has improved and the facility is no longer needed.
Keep in mind that if you are a nursing home resident and have been discharged, you have the right to appeal any discharge.
