Ohio Nursing Home Patient Bill of Rights
Ohio law lists the rights of every nursing home resident. This law is known as the Ohio Nursing Home Patient Bill of Rights. Under this law, patients have the right to:
A safe and clean living environment.
Be free from physical, verbal, mental and emotional abuse.
Appropriate medical treatment and nursing care.
All reasonable requests and inquiries responded to promptly.
Ohio Office of the State Long Term Care Ombudsman
When you suspect abuse or neglect at an Ohio nursing home or long-term care facility, you should also contact the Ohio Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman to discuss your concerns.
Ombudsmen do not police nursing homes. Instead, they work with the nursing home, residents and their families or representatives to resolve issues. When you contact this agency, you will be assigned with a personal ombudsman who can link you with various services and agencies that can further assist you.

star_rate"John Lynette is who I had for both of my not at fault vehicle accidents. He definitely got the job done! Was VERY thorough, fair and honest through the process of each individual vehicle accident! If I had questions throughout the process, he would answer them with no problem and with ease! In my opinion he's the best!! =)"
~Dawna M. Columbus, Ohiostar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rateSubmit a Law Firm Client Reviewstar_rateMr. Slater and Rick Zurz are lawyers who are caring, courteous and professional. Twenty - six years ago they represented my son in a head injury case. I was pleased with the results, that provided for his future. When this catastrophic auto accident occurred I recalled their excellent management of the previous case and contracted them again. I recommend them if you are looking for good honest lawyers.
~Joann K. Cleveland, Ohiostar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rateSubmit a Law Firm Client ReviewI couldn't have picked a better law firm than Slater and Zurz. They were friendly and helpful from the first call. They ask what you need and find the perfect attorney for you. Silas Pisani managed our case start to finish. He is knowledgeable, dedicated and goes the extra mile to make sure he handles everything for you. We would have never made it without his advice and expertise. We were lucky to have such a great attorney. Would highly recommend!!
