Abstract

An involuntary discharge from a long-term care (LTC) facility occurs when the facility provides a 30-day written notice to a resident informing him/her of the need to move out of the facility. The notice must set out the reasons for the transfer or discharge as well as state the effective date, location of transfer or discharge, statement of appeal rights and the contact information (name, address and telephone number) for the Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman.
