COVID-19: K&L Gates Triage: Responding to the Unimaginable: Legal Challenges for Nursing Homes & Long-Term Care Facilities in a COVID-19 Enforcement Environment

Date: 9 June 2020

On this week’s episode, John Lawrence, Myla Reizen and Mark Rush discuss the devastating effects COVID-19 has had on nursing homes and long term care facilities in the United States and potential civil and criminal liability that may stem from how nursing homes and long term care facilities have responded. In particular, the presenters discuss guidance the United States government has provided to nursing homes and long term care facilities for handling the COVID-19 pandemic, areas of potential exposure to criminal and civil actions for nursing homes and long term care facilities related to their response to the pandemic, and what protective measures such facilities can take to prevent or defend against such civil and criminal actions.
