Assisted Living Facilities in the State of Florida are required to provide their residents access to adequate and appropriate health care. However, far too often these facilities simply accept residents and their payment sources, while doing little to care for them. One of the most common concerns with assisted living care is over-medicating residents who have become too challenging for the assisted living caregivers. Over-medication of residents has been shown to lead to falls, skin breakdown, dehydration, malnutrition and sometimes even death. Holding assisted living facilities accountable for their actions can be difficult because they are typically not inspected by the government more than once every two years and charting requirements are lax.
