When you or your loved one is being admitted into a nursing home, you may be presented with a lot of paperwork to fill out and sign. Before you sign anything, you should watch this video to find out about the paperwork the nursing home is presenting you with.

Under Florida law, nursing homes and assisted living facilities are permitted to put arbitration agreements in the initial paperwork that residents sign upon being admitted to that facility. You need to know that the arbitration agreement is designed to protect the nursing home and not you or your loved one. Additionally, it is important to note that you are under no obligation to sign it.  

To have a lawyer review the paperwork the nursing home wants you to sign, call us today. We would be happy to review the information free of charge to make sure you are not giving away your legal rights. You can reach us at 888-409-3805 or online at
