When checking yourself or your loved one into a nursing home or assisted living facility (ALF), the staff will present you with a number of documents they want you to quickly sign upon admission. Before you sign anything, find out what you should be looking for and what is included in the paperwork.

Whether you are moving yourself or your aging parent into a nursing home, moving day is often an overwhelming and emotional day. To top it off, an employee at the home presents you with a stack of documents they want you to sign. However, before signing these agreements, you should know that hiding amongst the paperwork could be an arbitration provision that could strip you of your legal rights and prevent you or your loved one from having a day in court. If you sign this document, it may limit you on the type of damages you can recover if you ever choose to file a nursing home abuse lawsuit in Sarasota.

To make sure you are not signing paperwork that could prevent you from recovering damages, you can have a qualified nursing home abuse attorney read through the documents. Mallard Perez will review your nursing home admission paperwork for free. Call us today about your paperwork questions or abuse claims at 888-409-3805 or contact us on our website.
