Florida law on nursing home abuse arbitration is shaking up. The Supreme Court of Florida has held that family members cannot sign arbitration agreements for residents, in the case of Mendez v. Hampton Court.
Forced nursing home arbitration is banned by the US government agency, CMS. As a result nursing home arbitration agreements will be unenforceable after November of 2016. This is a landmark decision which will greatly help residents and their families in the fight against nursing home abuse and neglect.
