IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED
Help legislators understand the impact of HB 72
Legislators do not understand why HB 72 by Rep. Greg Cromer is harmful to nursing home residents.
Can you help us with examples of why we should retain a distinction between negligence claims and medical malpractice claims for injuries to residents of nursing homes?
If this were law when Katrina hit, how would it have affected the lawsuits against nursing homes in St. Bernard Parish where residents drowned? Would those cases become medical malpractice cases under HB 72?
