America’s senior population, especially those living in long-term care facilities, took the brunt of Covid’s heavy hit on health and life expectancy. Many of those facilities are now the subject of legal actions challenging the level of care provided during the pandemic.
Many of these issues, including staffing shortages, neglect, oversight and accountability, have long predated Covid.

A forum for group discussion and analysis, this seminar walks you through practical considerations for taking, preparing and defending a case against a long-term care facility.
