Careful Preparation Of Admission Agreements And Policies

Admission agreements are a valuable tool in the identification of responsible parties and in defining their duties and responsibilities. A well-drafted agreement will clarify the rights and obligations of the facility, the resident and the responsible party, and will minimize disputes, including collection matters, which may arise in the future. A health care provider's admission agreements and policies must comport with requirements imposed by oversight agencies and applicable anti-discrimination laws.

The attorneys at Latsha Davis & McKenna, P.C., have counseled providers in creating agreements that have effectively addressed these issues, including whether to incorporate an arbitration clause as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism, for nursing, personal care and other post-acute care providers. We have participated in the development of policies for health care providers governing the admission, transfer and discharge of residents and patients.
