in all of the following circumstances, unless the resident, client, or patient objects:

- A resident, client, or patient who was living with family before being admitted to the
facility is struggling with the change in environment and lack of in-person family
- The resident, client, or patient is making one or more major medical decisions.
- A resident, client, or patient is experiencing emotional distress or grieving the loss of
a friend or family member who recently died.
- A resident, client, or patient needs cueing or encouragement to eat or drink which
was previously provided by a family member or caregiver.

Additionally, the bill allows a resident, client, or patient the option to designate a visitor
who is a family member, friend, guardian, or other individual as an essential caregiver.
We will allow an in-person visitation by the essential caregiver for at least two hours
daily in addition to any other visitation authorized by the facility.

Fla. Stat. § 429.28 Resident bill of rights
In compliance with Fla. Stat. § 429.28, the facility does not restrict private
communication of its residents, including receiving and sending unopened
correspondence, access to a telephone, and visiting with any person of their choice, at

No Patient Left Alone Act (Senate Bill 988)
The No Patient Left Alone Act (Senate Bill 988), was created to guarantee Florida
families the fundamental right to visit their loved ones who are receiving care in
hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and intermediate care
facilities for the developmentally disabled (long-term care facilities). No healthcare
facility in Florida may require a vaccine as a condition of visitation and every healthcare
facility must allow their residents and patients to be hugged by their loved ones.
