Selecting a nursing home facility or an assisted living facility for a loved one can be an extremely difficult and confusing decision. Florida has nearly 700 long term care facilities and accounts for nearly 72,000 residents. With so many choices, it can make the decision of which facility to select much more difficult. Our Tampa Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys can assist you and answer questions to assist in this difficult decision.
Prior to selecting a long term care facility for your loved one, it is important to research the facilities' survey history. Because long term care facilities are governed by the Agency for Health Care Administration, there is a public website run through the Agency for Health Care Administraction that provides survey history of all the facilities. Nursing homes are also rated by their survey history and can be awarded the Nursing Home Gold Seal Award.
