According to recent reports, some nursing and assisted living facilities were unprepared or unwilling to follow state and federal orders and guidance on coronavirus infection control. On March 9, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issued coronavirus guidelines for nursing homes. Reports indicate, however, that certain facilities departed from these guidelines and did not adopt adequate measures to protect their residents.

Girard Sharp is investigating the validity of these reports and potential legal claims on behalf of those exposed to COVID-19 while residing at a nursing home or assisted living facility corporation.

Currently, our investigation is focused on facilities owned or operated by the following entities:

  • Atria Senior Living Group
  • Brookdale
  • Genesis Healthcare
  • Healthpeak Properties
  • Sunrise Senior Living
  • Sutter Health
