Written for the trial attorney, healthcare professional, and claims adjuster, this book provides detailed information on how to litigate a nursing home claim. Each section of this valuable text is designed to fully explain this hot topic in healthcare. The book starts with an overview of legal strategies with a focus on screening cases for merit, discovery techniques, and the role of the legal nurse consultant. The emerging area of liability in assisted living and pain mismanagement is included. It continues with coverage of liability issues (causes of action, providers, and settings). The last section is dedicated to presenting the defense perspective from the standpoint of the physician, attorney, and claims adjuster. By combining the legal information in the first section with the high risk liability issues covered in the second section, this book becomes a must read for any attorney involved in nursing home or assisted living claims, or any nursing home administrator.
