Orlando, Florida – August 2, 2012 – Andrew R. McCumber, Managing Shareholder at McCumber, Daniels, Buntz, Hartig & Puig, P.A., presented “Obtaining Agreements to Arbitrate Claims Arising from Long Term Care: Can We or Can’t We?” to attendees of the Florida Health Care Association’s 2012 Annual Conference.
Two recent opinions out of the Florida Supreme Court (Shotts v. OP Winter Haven and Gessa v. Manor Care of Florida, Inc.) attack the use of arbitration agreements in long term care facilities. Despite federal policies encouraging arbitration, these decisions create new avenues to more easily invalidate arbitration agreements in the long term care setting. This presentation explained the substantive and procedural impacts of these decisions and provides guidance on how to protect your facility’s ability to arbitrate.
