This webinar took place on Thursday, May 30, 2019 11 am-12 pm PT/2-3 pm ET.
Federal nursing home law is meant to protect residents from poor care, discrimination, evictions and many other problems, but many nursing homes commonly follow unlawful procedures. If federal nursing home law is strong (which it is), why is the care often so poor?
Many consumers and their families don’t know the law or may be afraid to speak out about poor care due to fear of retaliation. But firm advocacy by attorneys and other advocates can make the difference. This webinar addresses common problems including evictions, overmedication, termination of Medicare coverage, discrimination against Medicaid-eligible residents, and other issues. The webinar intends to provide advocates, consumers and their friends and family members with advocacy tools to address these common problems.
The information in this webinar is based upon the recommendations in our recent guide, 25 Common Nursing Home Problems and How to Resolve Them.
Who should participate:
Legal advocates, consumers and their friends and family members.
Eric Carlson, Justice in Aging
