After doing some research, I have not been able to find a ton of information on this subject. There is a great deal of information on patient rights, but not much on the exact legal responsibilities of the establishment. With what I have read I can only infer that the scope of legal responsibility lies in providing quality health and daily life services. This will more than likely be detailed in the contact that will be provided. For a full briefing of the legal responsibilities of a retirement facility, simple contact that specific facility and talk with an admissions officer.
