NURSING HOMES
Also see: ELDERLY

____ Make a decision to put a person in a nursing home your last resort, not your first
____ Explore options to keep the person at home instead, e.g.:
          - Hiring nurses and/or aides to live in and/or visit the person
          - Getting help from a hospice group
____ Call area office on aging
____ Call ombudsmen
If the person must go to a nursing home:
____ Review the facility's certification and licensing reports
          - Check for evidence of patient care violations - on file with state public health department - they are public records - you have a right to see them - you can also ask the nursing home to see their copies - don't take anything for granted - don't take "no" for an answer when asking to see records (if they balk, you walk!)
