In South Carolina, are persons living in nursing homes protected under law?

Yes, the Omnibus Adult Protection Act was put in place to protect the rights of those living in nursing homes.  Under the law, employees at nursing homes are required to report any abuse that they suspect to have occurred and if they do not report the abuse, then they are required to pay a fine.  Moreover, the Omnibus Adult Protection Act mandates that anyone who has been proven of neglecting a resident of a nursing home will face criminal penalties.
