Deceased Nursing Home Patients Signed Arbitration Clauses Upon Admission

Nursing home patients that died preventable deaths following a hurricane may not have justice served in the negligence of care leading to their deaths. The nursing home requires arbitration agreements for all nursing home patients, waiving the right to any court appearance with a judge and/or jury. The patients' loved ones will not be able to see through a case, outside an arbitration controlled by the nursing home. 

A local attorney who serves to fight against nursing home abuse and neglect stated, “It’s unlikely the families of the dead residents will get justice. [The state] has the largest elderly population in the nation, yet nursing home residents get horribly mistreated like this not infrequently. In most cases, there is no media coverage, no outrage, and no accountability.” For more, read the story
