New Issue Page on Transfer-Discharge

February 25, 2016

Find important resources on involuntary and voluntary transfers or discharges from a nursing home on the new Consumer Voice issue page.

The threat of transfer or discharge from a nursing home can be both frightening and stressful for residents and their families. Too often, a facility may respond to resident’s difficulties or increasing need for care or repeated questions or complaints from family members by transferring or discharging the resident.  Learn about your rights and find helpful resources on involuntary transfer or discharge.

Many consumers feel that living at home sustains their independence, dignity, and freedom of choice. Find resources and consumer perspectives on transitioning from a nursing home back into your home.
