The Patients’ Rights are an important, legally enforceable, standard of Nursing Home Care. These rights include, but are not limited to, the right to be treated with dignity, respect and consideration; the right to be free from physical and mental abuse; the right to retain and use personal clothing and possessions; the right to participate in resident groups and activities; the right to a safe, clean, and homelike environment; the right to be free from infections; the right to be free from developing painful pressure sores or bed sores, as they are more commonly named; the right to be free from incontinence; and the right to be free from dehydration and malnutrition. These rights are not only the ethical duty of the Skilled Nursing Facility, they are articulated in section 72527 of Title 22 of the California Health and Safety Code and as such, they are enforceable by law.
