What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Florida. There is a lady at the nursing home who doesn't want to go to bed. She prefers to sleep in her wheelchair. Does she have the legal right to do so? The supervisors at the nursing home are saying No and are saying that we have to put her to bed. I see no court documents in her chart saying that she has been found to be" mentally incompetent" in a court of law.
