Unlawful Trade Practices, Investigations and Claims: Are Long Term Care Providers at Risk?
Jeff Brecht and Gabriela Sanchez co-authored an article titled “Unlawful Trade Practices, Investigations and Claims: Are Long Term Care Providers at Risk?” In the article, Brecht and Sanchez discussed unfair or unlawful trade practice laws and acts in the long term care industry. They also discussed strategies for long term care providers to help reduce the risk of unfair trade practice investigations and claims.
Because of the inherently vulnerable nature of the residents at long term care facilities, long term care providers need to be particularly vigilant to ensure that they do not engage in any conduct that could be construed as deceptive or unfair. Be proactive today to reduce the risk of tomorrow. The alternative is increased risk of investigations, claims, and potential liability, and those who violate unfair trade practices laws can face substantial negative consequences, both from a reputation and monetary perspective.
