GA partners are widely regarded as among Oklahoma and Arkansas’ foremost experts in the extremely complex maze of statutes and regulations that govern the nursing home and long-term care industry. Indeed, long-term care facilities are subject to more regulations than any other health care institution.
GA has committed decades to successfully and aggressively defending these centers in literally hundreds of cases in every facet of nursing home defense, from all aspects of alleged wrongful death, abuse, neglect, medical device use and mistreatment to administrative actions or regulatory inquiries involving state licensing boards for nursing professionals or administrative staff.
Moreover, insurance companies that insure the nursing home and long-term care industry often seek out the representation and counsel of GA because of the firm’s significant expertise in this high-stakes, highly litigious area of law.
Another element of bringing about a successful outcome in actions regarding nursing home defense is the ability to know when it is best to embark upon an alternative dispute resolution path. The firm’s proficiency in alternative dispute resolution is equal to its ability to aggressively defend clients in the courtroom.
As part of their comprehensive services, GA is also committed to helping the nursing home industry manage their risk and minimize their exposure by regularly consulting with facilities to ensure compliance with the myriad of regulations in this area.
The firm has also provided assistance to the industry in their efforts to converse with legislative and regulatory bodies about critical issues affecting the viability of the industry and the care of its patients. Founding partner George Gibbs has had significant involvement with LeadingAge Oklahoma, a non-profit organization that furthers innovative practices to improve the care for our burgeoning aging population.
