Can Nursing Home Staff Keep Me From Seeing My Loved One In New Orleans?

Nursing homes are not allowed to keep you from seeing and visiting with your loved one in residential care.

In fact, if you suspect that a nursing home is creating unreasonable obstacles to your visits, it may be a sign of abuse, neglect, or exploitation of your loved one.

While the nursing home has the right to create reasonable hours for visitation by guests, after that, only residents themselves have the right to restrict who their visitors are.

If you have concerns for the welfare of a loved one in a nursing home in New Orleans, it’s important that you act right away to address your worries.

Our seniors are a vulnerable population and extremely prone to various types of abuse and misuse by unscrupulous people charged with taking care of them.

You have a right to visit with your loved one and confirm that they are healthy, safe, and free from coercion.
