Did you know that there is often a clause in Nursing Home admission paperwork known as Nursing Home Arbitration? This can severely limit your rights and options in the event your elderly loved one is not cared for properly.
What does this mean for you or your loved one?
Simply put, if you or your loved one signs Nursing Home admissions papers with the arbitration clause in place, you’re giving up your rights to pursue legal action in the event that abuse or neglect occurs.
Several groups are working to ban such arbitration. This would allow patients and their families to take action in the event abuse or neglect occurred.
