Medical Marijuana in the Post-Acute and Long-Term Sectors | Alan C. Horowitz, Esq., Arnall Golden Gregory LLP

The legal issues surrounding the topic of medical marijuana are nuanced and often risky for providers since 33 states permit its use while the federal government does not. This becomes a challenge for all nursing homes that participate in the Medicare and/or Medicaid programs since they have agreed to abide by all federal laws as a condition of being a Medicare provider. There are many other legal issues on both sides of medical marijuana in long-term care, not the least of which is respecting residents’ rights.

Winning Documentation Practices | Roseann Brenner, Esq., Goldfein & Joseph, P.C.

How you and your staff document can mean the difference between success and failure when litigating a case. Litigation within the healthcare sector is on the rise and the long-term care and post-acute world is not exempt. In addition to the medical record, there are many other pieces of documentation that can become part of your case during litigation, including the event/incident report, statements, photos, emails, policies, procedures and guidelines. During this session, an experienced trial attorney will help you to understand the importance of all your documentation to better prepare you should your organization become involved in litigation.
