RESIDENT's RIGHTS

Consumer support / Regulation

Residents in RCFEs do not give up their rights when they choose to live in an assisted living facility.  At admission, a resident and the resident's responsible person must be personally advised of and given a list of these rights.  The Licensee must have each resident and the resident's responsible party sign a copy of these rights and the signed copy shall be included in the resident's record.  

In 'nutshell' version, here are the Resident Rights - current as of 2016. To see the entire set of resident rights, see California Health and Safety Code 1569.261 to 1569.269.
