O.C.G.A. 31-8-131 (2010)
TITLE 31 - HEALTH
CHAPTER 8 - CARE AND PROTECTION OF INDIGENT AND ELDERLY PATIENTS
ARTICLE 5A - REMEDIES FOR RESIDENTS OF PERSONAL CARE HOMES
§ 31-8-131 - Legislative findings and intent
31-8-131. Legislative findings and intent
The General Assembly finds that persons residing within personal care homes are often isolated from the community and often lack the means to assert fully their rights as individual citizens. The General Assembly also recognizes that in order for the rights of residents of personal care homes to be fully protected, residents must be afforded a means of recourse when such rights have been denied. It is therefore the intent of the General Assembly to preserve the dignity and personal integrity of residents of personal care homes by providing access to a legal process to hear and redress the grievances of such residents regarding their individual rights.
