- Q. Can a nursing home kick out out if you have been making payments?
- A: You have the right to challenge the discharge by filing an appeal with the Ohio Department of Health. It sounds like they have no proper grounds to discharge him. If you file the appeal within 10 days, then the nursing home must wait for the appeal to be decided before they do anything. Also, either way, he must be discharged to a safe place. If you say that you can't take care of him, then they can't send him home to you. They must find him a safe place. Also, the discharge notice is faulty if they don't name a place where he would be moved. You should appeal it. http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/3721.16 http://codes.ohio.gov/oac/3701-61-03
- Q. Mom is 82 with early signs of dementia and wants to travel to Peru to see her sisters. Can I stop her from going?
- A: In order to stop her, you would need to become her Guardian.
- Q. Do nieces and nephews have inheritance rights under these circumstances in Ohio?
- A: Her siblings would be next in line to inherit.
- Q. My grandmother was just placed into a nursing home. Can Medicaid take her land even though she has a survivor deed?
- A: In general, Medicaid will put a lien on her portion of the property after her passing to recover any amount of Medicaid benefits they paid out while she was in a nursing home. This is true, even if it is a survivorship deed (to the extent of her percentage of ownership.) It is also true, even if a TOD beneficiary is named There are some exceptions to this rule. Here are 3. 1) If she has a surviving spouse, then the collection is delayed until after his death. 2) If she has a disabled child, then the collection is delayed until after the death of that surviving child. 3) If she has a child living in the house, that provided care to her for 2 years, then in some circumstances, Medicaid will not pursue collection against the house.
- Q. Hello, I have a quick question but there's not enough room to ask it here.
- A: If she has her own assets, such as a house, then the state can go after those assets as reimbursement for funds they paid out to you. However, some exceptions apply.
- Q. I own both a car and house with a girl, we are not married. If I die will she take full ownership or do I need a will?
- A: If you own an asset together and the title contains the words " joint owners, with rights of survivorship" then the asset would pass to the other person automatically upon the first to die. Otherwise, you need a will that names your girl friend.
- Q. my mom passed last week. she seems to have an outstanding medical bill. how valid is that bill post death
- A: If she opens a probate case within 6 months of death, then the bill could be payable from her probate estate assets, if she has sufficient probate assets. If she does not file a probate case, then it is unlikely this bill will need to be paid. In general, her debts are only payable from her assets. If she has no assets, then generally, the family is not responsible to pay her debt from their personal assets. Some exceptions apply, so I would need more information.
- Q. Regarding Ohio SNF ResidentTrust Fund/Personal Needs Account.
- A: Perhaps there is an unpaid funeral bill to be paid. See Ohio Administrative Code 5160-3-16.5)H)(3)(c) "If funeral and/or burial expenses for a deceased resident have not been paid, and all the resident's resources other than the PNA have been exhausted, the resident's PNA account funds shall be used to pay the funeral and/or burial expenses." The family could also file for Release from Administration, which may not be as expensive.
- Q. Can a resident in a facility be recorded on video surveillance by family members without the resident's consent?
- A: If the resident is competent to make medical decisions, then no.
