Alexis Graziano, Associate in the firm's Litigation section, will speak on a panel, "Litigating Nursing Home and Assisted Living Cases: The Basics and Beyond," hosted by the New Jersey State Bar Association
A substantial body of unique law exists surrounding care facilities such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and these long-term care providers face legal and policy issues that dramatically differ from those faced by other healthcare providers. The same applies to the residents of the facilities. Whether prosecuting or defending claims, having a working knowledge and understanding of the interrelationships of the law, regulations, standards and medicine is essential to properly represent clients.
The panel will outline the relevant laws, regulations, professional standards and enforcement practices, and give insight into handling cases alleging neglect, resident rights violations and inadequate care at these facilities.
