Can a nursing home kick you out for bad behavior?
My Dad has been in a nursing home since his last fall in December. He is Medicaid pending. He has dementia and is really mean to the staff if he doesn't get his way. He has been told he is "long-term" but keeps asking what is the plan to get him home. We tell him there is no plan right now. They have no money. He is in a REALLY good nursing home, top of the line. The care is excellent. I have no problem with the care he is getting. He's just an SOB. They have him on meds to chill him out but I think he's so frustrated being there, he takes it out on everyone. He complains about the heat, the food, the nurses. I think they are trying to kick him out because now the nurses are saying he made advances towards him. I don't believe them. He has NEVER behaved that way. This is getting ugly. I cannot care for him, nor can my 84 yr old mother. My two siblings have disappeared and will take no responsibility for any of this. Can they k ick him out because he is a trouble maker?
