The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines financial abuse as an unacceptable misuse of money or property belonging to a nursing home resident.
If an elderly loved one has cash, benefits, or personal property stolen from them, they could be the victim of nursing home financial abuse. A Jacksonville missing money or personal items lawyer can help your loved one recover from this type of treatment.

Do Not Wait To Get Your Compensation Claim Started
Florida Statute §429.28, also known as the Resident Bill of Rights, entitles nursing home patients to certain protections that cannot be violated.
Florida’s Resident Bill of Rights includes:
- The right to live in a safe and decent environment free of abuse or neglect
- The right to be treated with respect and dignity
- The right to keep in contact with those outside of the nursing home through phone calls, written correspondence, and physical visitations
- The right to maintain exclusive possession of their personal property in their private living quarters
- The right to maintain control of their personal finances and safeguard their money from theft
This act also entitles your loved one to file a civil action against the nursing home if their rights are violated. The legal team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can address your questions and concerns as you move forward with your case. To learn more, call 1-800-747-3733.
