Javerbaum Wurgaft attorney Saul Gruber has been instrumental in creating a petition and leading the charge for the American Association for Justice in the negotiation with CMS to ban nursing home arbitrations.
According to Gruber, fine print buried in nursing home admissions contracts is depriving nursing home residents and their families of their constitutional rights. During the incredibly stressful nursing home admissions process, many nursing home corporations push residents and their families into signing away their right to go to court — even in instances when residents suffer severe neglect, serious injuries, death or sexual and physical abuse.
Gruber states that nursing homes should focus on helping elderly individuals live in dignity and thrive with the support of caring professionals and not on protecting themselves when they harm residents with poor care.
