I am moving my mom into a nursing home and they include a form for me to
sign waiving them of ANY liabilities for wrong doing. They also state that they
will not be watching the residents all the time and that they will be left alone, possibly for extended periods of time.
They also state if we expect the patient to have closer supervision, we should hire a private nurse! Wow, I guess, that's the norm now, whether you're having an operation or anything else done, everyone wants us to sign a waiver so that we won't hold them responsible even if they are negligent.
I don't like signing these forms, but I am sure they won't even entertain admitting someone that doesn't. Can anyone that may have admitted their loved one recently, shed any light on this matter for me?
