Course Materials

The CLE course will guide medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys who litigate cases against nursing homes arising from residents' injuries. The panel will review the laws and regulations governing nursing homes, common types of injuries suffered by residents, how to handle medical records and other discovery issues unique to these cases, and damages assessment and valuation.


Counsel bringing or defending nursing home injury claims must understand the statutory, regulatory, and established common law standards of care applicable to nursing home residents and governing patient care.

The most common nursing home injuries--pressure sores, severe malnutrition or dehydration, physical and chemical restraints, elopement, falls, improper medication, and abuse--involve different approaches. Medical records, discovery, and damage assessment present unique challenges to counsel.

Listen as our authoritative panel of practitioners provides an overview of nursing home laws and regulations, discusses common types of injuries, covers how to handle medical records and other discovery issues unique to these cases, and reviews how to assess damages.



  1. Relevant laws and regulations
  2. Common types of injuries
  3. Discovery issues
  4. Reviewing medical records

  • What evidentiary and discovery challenges are present in nursing home injury claims--and how can counsel best address them?
  • What is the role of pain and suffering claims in the assessment of damages?
