What can I do about the language barrier at my Mom's nursing home?
Share with friends
There is only one nurse on my Mom's floor who speaks Spanish n it's not even her first language. Most people speak Creole. They cannot communicate with her n she can't with them. It's very frustrating!!
Nursing homes of the past were known as institution-like environments, where people went to die. Today's nursing homes have been modernized and are comfortable home-like settings and have changed over time.
If your elderly loved one dies while they are staying in a nursing home, can you sue the home for wrongful death? Nursing homes can include special passages—called "binding arbitration clauses"—in their contracts with residents to limit their chances of being taken to court.
