Chris McNally to Present on Involuntary Discharge Process

Christopher M. McNally will be presenting a seminar on the Impact of HB 592 on the Involuntary Discharge Process on July 18, 2019 and July 23, 2019.  A co-supervisor of both the long-term care and nursing home malpractice defense team at Bodie, McNally has vast experience in these areas of law, and is also a frequent lecturer at a variety of events on topics pertinent to long-term care defense.

Learn the “nuts and bolts” of the specific changes coming October 1, 2019 to the Involuntary Discharge Process from HB 592 including significant changes to the Patient’s Bill of Rights, the 30-Day Notice Process (including numerous changes to the content of the 30-day letter), new provisions for post-discharge care planning, new restrictions on when, and to whom discharge can be accomplished and practical recommendations for compliance and to leverage some of the very positive changes to the law (including increased penalties on families for failing to complete MA applications and enhanced remedies). The success of your Involuntary Discharge cases post 10/1/19 depends on knowing these changes and implementing them at the facility-wide level! We will also discuss the impact of HB 592 on the discharge process on Medicaid Pending applicants and practical tips/solutions for the process in general.

The program will include strategies for success and strategies for avoiding having to go through the Involuntary Discharge process, with a focus on ADR and creative solutions to difficult problems. A review of the existing unchanged provisions of Involuntary Discharge law, including requirements for notice, basis for discharge, will also be covered.
