There are basic federal and state rights that are legally provided to residents within skilled nursing facilities. While these rights aim to protect vulnerable nursing home residents from mistreatment, these civil rights granted to residents by law are continuously violated. The purpose of this project was to promote the rights of nursing home residents, specifically their rights to autonomy, dignity, and respect. A grant proposal for a training program was developed on behalf of Wise & Healthy Aging, targeted towards direct care staff within skilled nursing facilities located within Los Angeles County. Components of the training program include teaching the staff about resident rights, the benefits of upholding resident rights, and how to handle or prevent common situations that they are likely to encounter related to these rights. The training program has the potential to increase the quality of life for residents, while decreasing the violations of resident rights within skilled nursing facilities.
