Customer Question
My mother in law...

My mother in law got out of the hospital and the assisted/nursing facility insisted she go to the nursing facility rather than back to her assisted living residence to be evaluated by PT, OT, and speech therapy. (Not a doctor.) They say they can keep her there for up to 90 days. She did not have an injury but was in the hospital for 3 days for a slight case of pneumonia. Can they stop us from insisting she be released back to her assisted living residence?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is your mother-in-law in? It matters because laws vary by location.

State of Ohio.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps has your mother-in-law taken so far?

What do you mean by what steps?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

She is in the exact same shape she was in before she was hospitalized. Even some of their evaluations that they have already finished show her to be doing fine. We want her to be able to go back to where she considers home. They won't even let her go to the bathroom by herself even tho she is perfectly capable.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
