Health and Safety Code section 1430(b) allows a resident or patient of a nursing home to sue the facility for breach of any rights guaranteed by the Patients’ Bill of Rights Act and for violation of regulations not relating to health and safety.  It allows up to $500 in damages, plus attorney fees and costs.  This opinion holds that the $500 cap on damages applies per lawsuit, so that if the patient sues for multiple violations in the same suit, he can still recover only $500, not $500 per violation.
