What to Do When a Resident Refuses Transfer or Discharge (Residential Care)

A residential care facility for the elderly may evict a resident only if one of the following criteria are met and documented:

  • Nonpayment of rate for basic services within ten days of their due date;
  • Failure of the resident to abide by state or local law;
  • Failure of the resident to follow facility policies;
  • Needs of the resident are no longer met; or
  • Facility has changed its purpose.
