This webinar took place on Tuesday, January 30, at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET
Prompt action is needed whenever a nursing facility abandons a resident in a hospital. This short webinar (30 minutes) will explain the relevant federal law and walk through various advocacy strategies to return the resident to their nursing facility home.
In this webinar, Advocacy Strategies When Nursing Facilities Won’t Allow Residents to Return After Hospitalizations, advocates will learn about survey agency complaints, administrative hearings, and state-court petitions for injunctive relief (for which Justice in Aging has template complaints and petitions). The webinar also will include how to combat the common problem of a state agency claiming that it cannot force a facility to take back a resident.
Who should attend:
Advocates and legal aid attorneys working with nursing facility residents and their families experiencing nursing home evictions and “dumping”.
Eric Carlson, Director, Long-Term Services and Supports Advocacy
