Upon the request of the resident or the resident's legal guardian, conservator, representative payee, or other person designated in writing by the resident, a nursing home must return all or any part of a resident's funds given to the nursing home for safekeeping, including interest, if any, accrued from deposits. A nursing home must develop a policy specifying the period of time during which funds can be withdrawn. The policy must ensure that the ability to withdraw funds is provided in accordance with the needs of the resident and must specify whether or not the nursing home allows residents to obtain funds to meet unanticipated needs on days when withdrawal periods are not scheduled. A nursing home must notify residents of the policy governing the withdrawal of funds. Funds kept outside of the nursing home must be returned within five business days.
