5. Safe and clean home

"Every resident has the right to live in a safe and clean environment."

In other words...

You have the right to have a clean and safe place to live in.

The long-term care home must be safe and everything should work properly. Smoke alarms must work, fire exits must be clearly marked, and stairways must be clear.

The building must be clean. Garbage should be taken out regularly. There should be no bad smells and the building must have a good air supply.
