Federal and State Government involvement in the regulation of aging services is significantly more aggressive than in any other segment of the health care delivery system. Regulation is so extensive, the aging services industry has come to be called in government lingo, 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 later litigation.
At HBS, we understand the liability implications created by this heightened regulatory environment. We recognize the issues facing aging service providers and can predict and track trends that shape the industry. We’ve built this knowledge and expertise through a focused familiarity with aging service clients; in fact, most of the members of the aging services group are completely specialized, only representing aging service providers. We are frequently called upon to share our knowledge with providers.
This dedication, focus, and experience gives our attorneys a real edge.
Our aging service attorneys are familiar with the latest regulatory changes that impact litigation and constantly monitor developments across the country to best gauge our approach. We not only practice within the states that we have offices (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee) 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 aging services 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
