On March 22, 2023, Partner Amy Yarbro will speak to attendees from the senior care industry regarding litigation and the legal landscape for senior care in Rhode Island.  Attorney Yarbro will describe claims made by resident families involving personal injury and wrongful death, in which monetary damages are often significant.  Common issues in nursing home litigation include pressure ulcers, falls, assaults, medication, and infection control, and defending these cases involves analysis of documentation of patient care, training, staffing, and policies and procedures for the facility.  Attorney Yarbro will provide recommendations and strategies to minimize the risk of being sued and to improve the defensibility of your case if you become a party to a lawsuit in Rhode Island.  LeadingAge RI is a community of non-profit aging services providers and other organizations serving older adults in Rhode Island.
