Nursing homes are required to provide a professionally directed program of activities, routine personal hygiene items, emergency dental services, and room and bed maintenance services to residents. Examples of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes might include social and recreational activities, adult day health care (which offers nursing and therapy) , wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, and skilled nursing or medical care. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper medical care, exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, spend time with visitors, and be free from restraints.
