EXPERT WITNESS SPECIALTY INDEX

Nursing Care Expert Witnesses

Nursing care, particularly in a nursing home environment, has been a topic of concern throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Geriatric populations—an incredibly susceptible group for viral infection— have been impacted at disproportionate rates, especially as coronavirus has spread through assisted living and nursing facilities. As you prepare COVID-19 litigation related to elder medical care, it will be critical to consult a nursing care expert witness who can speak to the specifics of nursing homes’ medical capabilities and the standard of care.

A nursing care expert witness can discuss:

  • Changes to standard operating and care protocols since the COVID-19 outbreak
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) compliance
  • Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) compliance
  • Pandemic and quarantine protocols for elder care facilities
  • “Good faith” care versus “gross negligence” as per new immunity bills
  • Best practices for health and safety with limited personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Best practices for communicating with the families of residents
