The Right or Wrong Way? Involuntary Discharge of Nursing Home Residents

The “Hot Topics in Elder Law” webinar will discuss the timely topic of nursing home discharges. A recent AP story suggested that "Nursing homes are increasingly evicting their most challenging residents." Nursing home owners assert that the homes are following the discharge rules and more importantly protecting vulnerable adults from violent residents. This interactive debate will feature advocates from both sides of the issue.

Moderated by Professor Roberta K. Flowers, the debate will feature Eric Carlson, directing attorney of Justice in Aging in Los Angeles, California, and Sheila Nicholson, who specializes in nursing home defense and is a partner at Quintairos, Prieto, Wood & Boyer P.A., in Tampa, Florida.
