Long Term Care, Nursing Home and Assisted Living Facilities

Defending Long Term Care Facilities

In recent years, lawsuits against nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other long term care facilities have been on the rise in Florida, Georgia and across the nation. This surge in cases may be attributed to an aging population, particularly in those states with a high proportion of elderly residents, as well as increased government oversight and regulation of the long term care industry. These claims not only threaten a long term care facility’s finances and operations, but they can also seriously harm its goodwill and reputation within a community.

The attorneys at Conroy Simberg have years of experience counseling and defending long term care facilities in the region. Our firm represents nursing homes, assisted living facilities, independent living facilities, home health providers and other members of the long term care industry. We offer proactive representation to facilities facing all types of claims, including:

  • Violations of residents’ rights
  • Abuse of residents
  • Slip-and-falls
  • Bedsores / Skin trauma
  • Failure to monitor residents
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Neglect
  • Infections
  • Elopement
  • Improper medical and nursing care

Our firm also represents nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other types of long term care facilities cited for violations before the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. In addition, we regularly represent physicians, nurses and other health care professionals working in the long term care industry in state administrative hearings and appeals, including cases before the Florida Department of Health and the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration.
