What are nursing home ethics?

See below: Not sure what you mean by your question. The workers at the nursing home are bound by the hipaa, federal and state laws. The information about the patient can only be released to someone else with your or your guardian written consent. If you need more clarification, please rephrase the question.

Nursing homes: That's a very grand question for this space. There is a patient code of ethics if it helps , see this site as an example: http://www.4fate.Org/html/bill_of_rights.Html.
