No agreement for care shall permit dismissal or discharge of the resident from the facility providing care before the expiration of the agreement without just cause for the removal.  If a facility terminates a resident for just cause, the facility shall pay to the resident any refund due in the same manner as if the resident had provided notice pursuant to R.S. 51:2178.  The term "just cause" includes, but is not limited to, a good faith determination that a resident is a danger to himself or others while remaining in the facility.
