As the baby boomer generation grows older and more individuals require nursing home care, nursing home litigation has emerged as a growing practice area. In a revealing discussion, personal injury attorney Ron Katter reviews how to litigate these causes of action, with special attention paid to evaluating the claims, the correct parties to name as defendants, and the importance of experts. This course also provides comprehensive overviews of the statutes and laws which regulate nursing homes, such as the Omnibus Budget Reconcilation Act of 1987 (OBRA) and the NYS Public Health Laws. Katter also provides examples of claims against nursing homes, ranging from bed sores to falls and intentional torts caused by nursing home employees. The course concludes with important tips for nursing homes to prevent these types of suits.

Ranks among the best programs I've seen. Excellent overview, I would recommend for any attorney with elderly parents who may require long-term care. It is particularly helpful to understand the challenges of litigating in this area; prevention is the best remedy, which means active engagement with the home and patient advocacy.
