Practice Areas: Long Term Care and Senior Housing Industry
Federal and State Government involvement in regulation of long-term care is significantly more aggressive than in any other segment of the health care delivery system. Regulation is so extensive, the long-term care industry has come to be called in government lingo what is known as a "closely regulated business." In addition, the results of these regulatory supervision and inspection actions are widely available public records, which can make a real impact in litigation.
At HBS, we understand the liability implications created by this heightened regulatory environment. We recognize the issues facing long-term care providers and can predict and track trends that shape the industry. We’ve built this knowledge and expertise through a focused familiarity with long-term care clients; in fact, most of the members of the long term care group are completely specialized, only representing long-term care providers.
This dedication, focus, and experience gives our attorneys a real edge.
Our long-term care attorneys are familiar with the latest regulatory changes that impact litigation and constantly monitor development in other states to best gauge our approach in Georgia. We not only practice within the state of Georgia but also frequently consult on out-of-state cases.
In short, we believe that by dedicating a team of committed professionals to focus on the long-term care industry, we can attain favorable outcomes for our clients. We actively represent:
- Skilled Nursing Facilities
- Assisted Living Facilities
- Personal Care Homes
- Mobile Radiology Providers
- Home Health Agencies
- Dialysis Providers
- Rehabilitation Providers
