A California court has ruled that a woman who was barred from readmission to a Sacramento nursing facility after being sent to a hospital had her rights violated.  The process, called dumping, is used when assisted living facilities have a resident who is either unruly, isn’t paying enough, or for whatever reason is not welcome by the staff and owners.  AARP Foundation took up her case.  Although the 82 year old woman won the case, it came after both she and her husband died.  Sadly, they were never reunited after she was barred from the facility.
