As some states begin to reopen, senior living providers are beginning a new phase of this pandemic: widespread litigation. The media continues to focus senior living communities, implying a connection between loss of life and quality of care. Many in the media are ignoring the disparate impact that the virus has on those with chronic medical conditions, the limitations created by the lack of widespread testing, and how the early federal response limited the options available to senior living operators to change outcomes.

This session will focus on the three most important things providers and their counsel need to do over the next 90 days to prepare for the next wave of litigation. We will cover the practical effect of state and federal immunity provisions and the need for a uniform response; review the current legal environment, including the new lawsuits filed against senior living providers; and discuss the need to document the pandemic experience now.
