Court Holds Responsible Party Provisions are Consistent with Nursing Home Reform Act

In the recent case of Eades v. Kennedy, PC Law Offices, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit found that provisions of an admission agreement that imposed certain financial obligations on the husband of a nursing home resident did not violate the Nursing Home Reform Act (NHRA), and that the NHRA does not preempt Pennsylvania's indigent support statute. In that case, the daughter and husband of a deceased nursing home resident filed suit against the law firm hired by the nursing home to collect resident's unpaid bill. As part of their claim, the plaintiffs claimed that the responsible party provisions of the admission agreement were unlawful under the NHRA. They further argued that the NHRA preempted Pennsylvania's indigent support statute.
