Nursing homes and other caregivers in the State of Arkansas that regularly handle patient trust monies must carry a patient trust fund bond.  The bond obligation ensures that the principal shall; (1) hold separately and in trust all patients’ funds deposited with Principal as a nursing home; (2) administer said funds on behalf of its patients in the manner directed by law; (3) render true and complete accounts on the patients, the depositors and the State when requested, and; (4) upon termination of each said deposit, account for all funds received thereunder, expended and held on hand.  A patient or the Governor of the State in the name of a patient(s) may bring suit against the surety bond.  Surety One, Inc., national surety leader is a preferred provider of patient trust fund bonds in all states where they are required.
