The Intersection Between Medical Malpractice and Hospital, Nursing Home, and Rehab Facilities

1h 33m

Created on September 21, 2015




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.
