Looking Under the Hood: Is It Time For An Admission and Arbitration Agreement Tune-Up?
Presented by Janice Merrill, J.D | Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin
Wednesday, August 7 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
For long-term care facilities, a valid arbitration agreement can be one of the most powerful risk management tools and an avenue to reduce indemnity payments. Outdated, non-compliant agreements are easy targets for surveyors and can be a catalyst for claims or litigation. This presentation will focus on admission and arbitration agreement compliance under Chapter 429 and the Florida Administrative Code. Topics covered will include the risk management benefits of arbitration agreements; jury trial waivers; admission and discharge requirements; facility rules and regulations; and using the admission documentation to set realistic expectations for life in an assisted living facility.
