Long Term Care Facility arbitration

D. Jay Davis, Jr. and James D. “Tripp” Gandy, III recently secured a defense verdict in a Long Term Care Facility arbitration.  Plaintiffs initially brought a claim in court despite the presence of an arbitration agreement.  After a successful motion to compel arbitration, the case proceeded in arbitration.  Plaintiff alleged that the facility and its staff failed: (1) to prevent pressure ulcers, (2) failed to monitor skin breakdown and promote healing, (3) failed to turn and reposition resident, (4) failed to develop and maintain an appropriate interim care plan, (5) failed to recognize, treat, and heal pressure ulcers, (6) failed to comply with nutritional standards of care, and (7) failed to keep the resident free from abuse.  The Facility denied all allegations, and after a multi-day arbitration, the Facility secured a defense verdict on all allegations.
