Nursing Home Residents’ Rights in the Time of COVID
This program does not carry MCLE credit. It is intended for informational purposes only.
COVID-19 has profoundly affected residents’ abilities to receive visitors, choose their roommates, and has both increased transfers of residents between facilities and complicated efforts to discharge residents who are able to return to their communities. This programwill provide an overview of these essential aspects of residents’ rights, how COVID has impacted policies and practices, and will provide advocacy tips.
