As our medicine progresses and people age, the course of treatment becomes more complicated. Often, patients are not simply discharged home. More and more frequently, people are discharged to rehabilitation centers, skilled nursing homes, and long term acute care hospitals (LTACH). Understanding these facilities, including what they do and do not do, how they operate, and how they get paid, is important to properly represent your clients.
Join Stark & Stark’s Michael Brusca and David Cohen as they explain the interplay between these facilities, the various medical malpractice issues that may arise, and how to effectively represent a client in these matters.
I. Recognize the differences between the types of facilities and how the facilities work with each other
II. Determine the negligent party
III. Identify what documents to look for in a medical record to quickly determine a patient’s status
IV. Grasp how the regulations work within the various facilities

Excellent presentation by very knowledgeable faculty. After 30 plus years of handling these type of cases, I learned some new and helpful tips.
The two speakers certainly knew their subject! I also appreciated learning more about how hospitals create their lists of LTACHs and nursing homes. Very helpful.
Definitely an interesting topic that I've never heard much about but get occasional calls on.
Excellent presentation - fascinating.
More interesting than I anticipated.
good overview of medical malpractice cases with information from 2 practitioners who only do these cases.
These two were really excellent. I have personal (not legal) experience in this area, but I still learned some very valuable information from this course.
Well presented course with adequate reading notes.
Very insightful discussion
These guys are great!
The tag team approach as carried out by these presenters was excellent.
An excellent review of an area that, as a medmal attorney, I was not conversant in.
The speakers did a great job of explaining how to approach and analyze where, when and how a patient came to harm when in usually two or more institutions, with valuable practical guidance as to how to drill down and need to obtain regulations, surveys, reports, staffing levels, etc. (Invaluable to know just for personal life in possibly preventing harm coming to a loved one who has to be in one of these places.)
Very informative presentation.
