Litigating with Assisted Living Facilities: The New Frontier

Production Date: July 31, 2015 Practice Areas: Litigation and Elder Law Estimated Length: 3730 minutes


$ 59 Litigation and Elder Law In Stock

As our population ages, Assisted Living constitutes a rapidly expanding field of healthcare. Since many of the residents in Assisted Living are private pay, it is potentially very profitable. Serious care issues arise because companies moving into this area are not necessarily healthcare companies – many of them are real estate companies with no healthcare expertise. Compounded with the fact that Assisted Living is very loosely regulated, this creates a recipe for disaster.  


Here, attorney Michael Brusca, of Stark & Stark, helps us understand these facilities, their limits, and how they operate, which is critical to properly holding them accountable when they fail residents who are hurt and often die as a result.


Learning Objectives:

I.     Understand Assisted Living Facilities and how they operate

II.    Recognize the legal problems these facilities encounter and what gives rise to them

III.   Comprehend the legal themes and theories involved

IV.   Determine when and who to depose in these cases

V.    Identify what documents are needed

Having had first hand experience with ACLF's, I wish I had known with my parents whatI've learned from this course. I plan to pass along a lot of the info to friends about to go through these same decisions of ACLF vs. nursing care or home care although fighting an arbitration clauseis probably not feasible for families up front.
