Resident Rights

States are required to effect bills of rights for nursing home residents. Generally, the same rights attach to residents in assisted living facilities as those in nursing homes. Most state declarations of rights parallel the federal ones, codified at 42 USC 1395i-3(a) to (h); and 1396r(a) to (h) (1988 supplement to the U.S.C.). They are enumerated in the section addressing nursing homes.
