Nursing Home Advocacy 101: Defending Involuntary Nursing Home Discharges
When: Wednesday, October 20th @ 12 PM, Free!!
Have you ever been told your client “needs to leave” a nursing home because they are “difficult” or that the nursing home can no longer care for them? Attorneys Kevin Brophy and Jean Mills Aranha from CT Legal Services will discuss involuntary nursing home discharges and how Conservators can respond to involuntary discharges and advocate for the client’s rights. They will discuss the legally valid reasons for an involuntary discharge, notice requirements, the appeals process, how to effectively defend an involuntary discharge, and what a proper discharge plan should include if discharge cannot be avoided.
This session has been approved for 1 CEC by NASW and 1 CLE by CT Bar Association.
