Social Development Policy Discharge/ Eviction Nursing Care Facilities

 Does this make sense?


Important information to be aware of. 
Department of Social Development policy, Standards & Procedures states you have rights but the Nursing Home Act states you can be discharge/ evicted for any reason.

Nursing Home Act 
Discharge of resident
17(1)If for any reason an operator intends to discharge a resident, the operator shall give at least 15 days’ notice of that intention to the resident and to his or her next of kin or legal representative unless the operator believes, on reasonable grounds, that the immediate discharge of the resident to the custody of another person is necessary for the safety of the resident or of other residents or staff.
