Free Medical Professional Liability Webinar on November 19, 2020

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gross McGinley’s Medical Malpractice Defense team is offering a free Zoom webinar to help long-term care facilities protect themselves from medical professional liability lawsuits.

Prior to the pandemic, litigation against long-term care facilities was on the rise, with two common causes for negligence lawsuits being pressure ulcers and falls. Now, with over 51,000 COVID-19 related deaths of U.S. nursing home residents, infectious disease-related suits have already begun. Pennsylvania’s nursing homes were hit especially hard by the coronavirus, amidst staffing and supply shortages.

The Zoom webinar, “Limiting Liability: Infectious Disease, Ulcers & Falls,” will be led by Attorney Kimberly Krupka and will take place Thursday, 11/19/2020, 11am-12noon. She will share insights on risk avoidance, record keeping and the financial motivations of plaintiff suits. Suggested attendees are nursing home administrators, directors of nursing and those in risk management and operations roles related to medical professional liability.

To register for this free event, please email or call 484-224-2788.
