ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the implications of Federal laws and regulations that require nursing homes to undergo procedural due process rights in the U.S. No one ever looks forward to entering a nursing home because it means leaving the things most dear to a person. Nevertheless, without the current nursing home system, many elderly and chronically ill persons, who require comprehensive treatment, would not have access to necessary care. In this article, the author attempts to elucidate how the Federal health administrative agencies has unduly restricted the rights of nursing homes.
