Nursing Home Arbitration Agreements: Your Rights

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities work to protect their businesses from legal action. One frequent protective measure they force upon patients and their loved ones is a mandatory pre-dispute binding arbitration agreement, which is included in the contract that is signed when a patient is admitted into the facility.

Beasley Allen attorney Chris Boutwell explains some of these rights provided under the law so that you, too, can be prepared.
