We are committed to serving and defending the nursing homes of Arkansas, Missouri and Texas. We utilize our extensive experience to counsel nursing home managers, owners and caregivers. With a specialty in risk management, we advise and defend nursing homes against such allegations as negligence, violations of residents’ rights, malpractice, wrongful death and employment law matters. While aggressively defending our clients, we also work closely with them to ensure their continuing involvement and understanding of the litigation process through the duration of the case. Our healthcare litigation experience allows us to thoroughly investigate and analyze claims while remaining cost effective for our clients.
In addition to our litigation services, we develop and review nursing home handbooks, compliance programs, and policies. We provide training to the staff on implementing policies and advise the staff regarding requests for medical records. We appeal survey findings, draft HIPAA-compliant agreements for business associates and provide regulatory guidance regarding HIPAA, HITECH and other state and federal statutes and rules. We are well versed in arbitration law and consult with healthcare facilities and insurers in developing arbitration agreements and policies.
