McCumber Daniels retained to draft Amicus to challenge recent Opinion extending corporate liability to Nursing Homes

Philadelphia, PA — August 26, 2010 — McCumber, Daniels, Buntz, Hartig & Puig P.A. filed an application for reargument as Amicus Curiae for the Pennsylvania Health Care Association and its companion organization, the Center for Assisted Living Management, directed at the recent Opinion set forth by a Panel of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania in Scampone v. Highland Park Care Center applying corporate liability to Nursing Homes. 

The expansion of corporate liability to nursing homes will create additional litigation on nursing home providers and will require the redirection of staff time to administrative matters that could otherwise be dedicated to resident care at the nursing home.  The application for reargument seeks to have the entire Superior Court review the Panel’s Opinion.

The Pennsylvania Health Care Association (PHCA) and its companion organization, the Center for Assisted Living Management (CALM) are statewide trade associations representing more than 334 long-term care and senior service providers that care for almost 33,200 elderly and disabled individuals.  PHCA and CALM advocate for compassionate, quality long-term care for Pennsylvania’s elderly and disabled residents.
