Resident Rights published on the Thirteen Thursday (#1) came from the RCW (Revised Code of Washington) Chapter 70.129. The 70.129.005 RCW states ...the intent of the legislature includes that long-term care facility residents have the opportunity to exercise reasonable control over life decisions. The legislature finds that choice, participation, privacy, and the opportunity to engage in religious, political, civic, recreational, and other social activities foster a sense of self-worth and enhance the quality of life for long-term care residents.
The first resident right identified was the right to a dignified existence. Fellow bloggers would you share with me? What would a dignified existence be for you? What would be a dignified existence for your parents?
