Georgia Enhances Advertising Protections for LTC

McKnight’s Long-Term Care News recently featured an article by Glenn P. Hendrix and Jason E. Bring summarizing Georgia’s new legislation regulating advertisements targeting long-term care facilities. The new law requires anyone using a nursing home survey finding in an advertisement to include more comprehensive information about the survey results and process. In addition to the advertising components, the new law restricts the use of federal conditions of payment for nursing homes as well as state licensing regulations from being used as the basis for a claim of negligence per se against nursing homes.  To view the article, please click here.
