How to Choose a Nursing Home in Ohio

Understand Your Rights With a Cleveland Attorney

When you are ready to place your loved one into a nursing home or other elder care facility, it is important that you know how to choose a home and what criteria to use when making such a decision. Not all elder care facilities treat their residents the same and some do a better job than others of protecting their interests and safety. Choosing the right nursing home can prevent incidences of neglect and abuse in the future.

Learn How to Choose a Nursing Home in Ohio

There are many aspects to consider when choosing an Ohio nursing home. Ask questions such as:

  • Is the nursing home privately owned, or is it part of a chain of nursing homes?
  • What is the nurse-to-patient ratio?
  • How many beds does the nursing home have?
  • How many nurses are on a shift?
  • Does the nursing home have any violations?
  • What do prior reports and past survey results say about the nursing home?

Social services and the state of Ohio collect information about nursing homes via surveys and violations. If a nursing home has had a violation, they can tell you what it was for and what the facility did to fix the problem.
