Our updated comprehensive reference guide for nursing home and long-term care facility administrators, risk managers, and staff is now available. The new 2021 Nursing Home Litigation Manual discusses the legal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on long-term care facilities, including strategies for preparing to defend pandemic-related claims. The Manual is designed to assist administrators and risk managers in identifying and managing a variety of risks faced by facilities, and includes an overview of the litigation process and legal analysis of the common theories of liability asserted against nursing homes. The Manual provides a legal perspective on the best practices for nursing homes and long-term care facilities in mitigating against these exposures, from the date a resident is first admitted to a facility, through the resolution of litigation.
