Dignity and Respect

  1. EACH RESIDENT has the right to considerate and respectful care and to be treated with honesty, dignity, respect and with reasonable accommodation of individual needs except where the health, safety, or rights of the resident or other individuals in the facility would be endangered.  It is recognized that every resident is an individual who has feelings, preferences, personal needs and requirements.
  2. EACH RESIDENT has the right to be free from physical, verbal, sexual or mental abuse, corporal punishment, involuntary seclusion, and any physical or chemical restraints imposed for purposes of discipline or convenience and not required to treat the resident’s medical symptoms.
  3. EACH RESIDENT has the right to retain and use personal possessions, including some furnishings, and appropriate clothing, as space permits, unless to do so would infringe upon the rights or health and safety of other residents.
  4. EACH RESIDENT will not be relocated with the facility, arbitrarily.  Each resident, and if known, the resident’s legal representative or interested family member has the right to receive notice before the resident’s room or roommate in the facility is changed.
