Heath Care Fraud & Abuse in Nursing Homes
All too often the elderly are treated as second class citizens just because they live in a nursing home. State and Federal law provide specific regulations for long term health care facilities. In fact, most long term healthcare facilities receive state and federal funding. In exchange for receipt of these government funds, these facilities enter into a contract (or provider agreement) wherein they agree to provide an acceptable level of care to residents. At Jehl Law Group, we believe in holding the nursing home to their end of the bargain.
