Michael Airdo and Mollie Werwas presented two sessions at the Illinois Health Care Association’s Annual Convention & Expo, held in Springfield, Illinois on September 9-12, 2019. First, Michael and Mollie discussed common pitfalls that arise in defending skilled care facilities in a presentation entitled, “Litigation Killers: When a Good Case Goes Bad.” Topics discussed included documentation errors, the importance of care plans, evidence preservation, and witness depositions. Their second presentation, “Social Media in the Nursing Home: A Legal Perspective,” provided conference attendees information about the liability exposures created by social media, and offered practical guidance for developing policies and procedures to minimize risk.
