  • Residents' Rights

    Residents’ Rights are guaranteed by the federal 1987 Nursing Home Reform Law. The law requires nursing homes to “promote and protect the rights of each resident” and places a strong emphasis on individual dignity and self-determination. This page includes information on Residents’ Rights, Residents’ Rights translations and National Residents’ Rights month.
