Question: What kind of issues arise in nursing home abuse and neglect cases?
Gabriel V. Kory: It is a very specific type of law, from our perspective. Nursing home cases or assisted living facility cases are really a business tort, white-collar crime, in my opinion, and medical malpractice mixed together. There are a number of issues related both to the running nursing homes and assisted living facilities as well as the medical components of cases involving those areas. The medical components can involve things like pressure ulcers, fractures, all kinds of issues associated with failing to properly monitor residents and patients within the studies.
