my mother is in an assisted living facility. She wants to go home, but the rehab stated no stairs. She wants to go home. She asked the director if the assisted prohibited her from going home. Mom was told 'no'. Are there any issues regarding mom's status/health insurance, etc prohibiting her from going home.? Will NYS intervene in this?

from what you are stating I do not see anything that is legally keeping her from going home

however concessions are going to have to be met before she can go home

clearly there can not be any steps, now whether that means a hospital bed or any other devices that is up to you to decide

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
