Can a nursing home evict a patient?

Matter of curiosity. If the patient has insurance and/or is paying bills on time what would be grounds for evicting that person? What would happen?

As with most questions, there's no definitive answer because there are so many variables.

I've read of instances where this happens if the resident is too disruptive. I always suggest that the people involved contact their long-term care ombudsman at www.ltcombudsman.org. This person represents the residents and families involved with a particular nursing home. Most matters can be resolved.

Like to many matters, where people live seems to be an issue. Some states have better nursing homes in general and some have different laws than others about governing the homes. Areas with more forward thinking nursing homes tend (in my opinion) to have fewer problems with their residents and therefore fewer of these issues.

Thanks for asking.
