Resident Have the Right to Choose Their Own Physician

Residents have the free choice to determine or choose their own physician

Pursuant to 42 CFR 483.10 (8)(iii)(d) Free Choice to Determine Physician “The resident has the right to— (1) Choose a personal attending physician;” — The free choice to determine your physician – this is a very important right – I recommend that you select a physician who is not affiliated with the nursing home facility.  Often times the physician is the Medical Director and they have a loyalty to the facility in this position.  There may be a conflict under some circumstances – the physician has duel loyalty, one to his patient the other to the facility.

If you have questions or concerns about a resident’s care in a nursing home or other care facility call Attorney Ken LaBore at 612-743-9048 or contact him by email at KLaBore@MNnursinghomeneglect.com.
