Helping nursing homes with legal matters

Nursing homes are very unique businesses. Thus, the concerns and issues that can come up when running a nursing home can be quite different from those connected to ownership of other types of businesses.

Among the unique things nursing home owners can face are unique legal issues. Dealing appropriately with the legal issues that come up is vital for nursing home owners, as such issues can have significant financial implications. Legal-issue-related financial implications are a big concern for any business. There is an added concern though when it comes to nursing homes, as negative financial impacts on a nursing home could make it much more difficult for the home to provide its residents with the high quality care that it wants to.

Some examples of legal issues that can come up for nursing homes are:

  • Debt collection issues: Getting properly paid for the services it provides can be vital to a nursing home's financial health. Engaging in debt collection actions in relation to unpaid bills can be a sensitive matter, and doing it the right way is vital.
  • Negligence claims: Claims of negligence toward patients can shake a nursing home to its core. Such claims could expose a nursing home to litigation, major financial problems, strained relations with residents and massive reputation problems. Thus, well-thought-out and appropriate action can be of the utmost importance for nursing homes when facing such claims. 
  • Disputes with employees: Nursing homes generally employ a wide range of different types of workers. Even seemingly minor disputes with employees, when not dealt with properly, could escalate into costly litigation for a nursing home. Thus, it is important for nursing homes to understand their options and what could be at stake when potential employment disputes arise.

When facing these or any other types of nursing home-related legal issues, a nursing home can benefit greatly from having the legal advice of an attorney who understands the unique legal needs and concerns of nursing homes.

Our firm understands the great impact that legal issues can have on nursing homes and is skilled at nursing home defense and in guiding nursing home owners through the unique legal matters they can face. We endeavor to help nursing homes deal with their legal issues in a way that does not compromise their financial stability or their ability to fulfill their mission of helping patients.
