An ongoing investigation by the Office of Inspector General in the Department of Health and Human Services has released an alert to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that more needs to be done to identify cases of abuse. While the full report from the investigation won’t be completed for another year, deep concern over the preliminary results prompted the Inspector General’s office to issue the alert.

Missouri Omnibus Nursing Home Act--how to get around damage caps, how the statute allows for punitive damages and attorney fees. No family wants to file a nursing home negligence claim. That is the thing that most people will never understand. There are around 15,700 nursing home and 1.4 million residents in nursing home in the United States.[1] There are many more incidences of nursing home abuse among these residents than claims filed.

ADVANTAGES OF FEDERAL COURT IN KANSAS NURSING HOME CASES In an ideal world, justice would be equally and readily available no matter where a person is injured. This is especially true in nursing home abuse cases. Families place their loved ones in nursing homes so they can receive the care they need and deserve. It should not matter where the nursing home is located if they injure the very people they are supposed to be protecting. [ 280 more words ]

In many cases it is very advantageous to get Kansas nursing home cases into Federal Court. Federal Court offers the ability to allege punitive damages in the complaint and entitles plaintiffs to a jury trial on punitive damages. Neither of these remedies are available at a state level. However, getting into federal court requires that the parties be diverse. Fortunately there is a common solution to this. [ 656 more words ]

As people grow older, their needs often rise. Eventually their families cannot provide adequate care and seek outside help. Nursing homes are supposed to provide this care, but families often are unable to find the right home for their loved one. Fortunately, the Nursing Home Compare Tool on the Medicare website[1] can be very helpful and informative. Families start out on the website by entering their zip code, city, or state.

Arbitration is supposed to be a way for two parties in a dispute to resolve the issue without going to court. It was designed to be optional and used when beneficial to both parties. Unfortunately, forced arbitration clauses are becoming too common in the healthcare industry. This is particularly true of nursing homes and long term care facilities. The result of this new development? [ 561 more words ]

In nursing home litigation, it is not always possible to obtain all the information necessary or desired from the nursing home itself. Fortunately other ways of obtaining this information exists. Missouri allows for Sunshine Requests and Kansas has open records requests. These requests serve to allow plaintiffs to discover the information they need. This includes the nursing home licensure file which shows the owner of the facility, any management company, and other pertinent data. [ 443 more words. ]

Nursing home surveys can be very helpful to plaintiffs in a nursing home negligence case. The surveys are done by a state agency to ensure that the nursing home is maintaining a safe and caring environment for its elder residents. If a nursing home is found to have violations, they may either appeal the results or institute a plan for correcting the deficiencies. [ 489 more words. ]

When people think of a business owner, they imagine one person or perhaps a small group of people. This is often not the case with nursing homes. Many homes have restructured in a way to best avoid liability for their adverse actions. While running from the consequences of injuring elders may seem repugnant, this is the reality of the nursing home industry today. [ 345 more words. ]

In nursing home negligence the nursing home often will try to argue that pressure ulcers are actually deep tissue injuries. This argument is essentially a claim that the injury was caused by something other than pressure building up on the area. This however is a very flawed argument, as deep tissue injuries and pressure ulcers are essentially the same thing. This is because both are caused by unrelieved pressure. [ 214 more words. ]
