What is a Care Agreement?
A care agreement is a contract between a medical facility and a patient that sets the terms and conditions for the patient's care during their stay. This type of contract is especially common in long-term health facilities like nursing homes, but can also be used for standard hospital stays and in other scenarios such as physical therapy.
The purpose of a care agreement is to set a standard for care that patients can rely on. It also protects patients from being wrongfully treated and allows care facilities to hold caretakers who breech the contract accountable for their actions in a court of law.
