With the number of Americans living in nursing homes expected to rise in the coming years, nursing home litigation is becoming increasingly important. O’Reilly provides an excellent overview of the entire process, first describing the context of nursing homes with a discussion about ownership and administration of nursing homes as well as the general environment. Different liabilities issues such as skin ulcers, fall injuries, neglect, abuse, and prescription drugs are all covered. Finally the elements necessary for preparing and trying a case are covered from assembling the complaint to verdicts and settlements.
