Emerging Issues in Long-Term Care

This annual CLE focuses on current and emerging issues related to long-term care, particularly in the assisted living and nursing home settings, that are of interest to Elder Law attorneys and related professionals as well as the clients they serve.
Get a pulse of what is going on in long-term care facilities from the Minnesota Department of Health (“MDH”) and medical professionals working in the long-term care setting.  MDH will provide an update on the successes, concerns, trend, and items Elder Law attorneys should know related to new assisted living licensure that began on August 1, 2021, including MDH surveys of the licensed facilities as an indicator of understanding of new regulations as well as the new process for the termination or non-renewal of housing or services of residents.  A Director of Quality Improvement, Education & Risk Management in the nursing home and assisted living settings will discuss navigating short staffing crises in the long-term care settings as well as continued COVID-19 considerations and some adjustments that may become more permanent.  A Medical Director of several nursing homes and formed Director of Hospice will give an overview of hospice as it relates to the long-term care setting, including transparency of information to residents and their families regarding hospice and coordination of care between and among long-term care and hospice staff.

In addition, as time allows, information on currently proposed legislation that may impact long-term care and general tips for attorneys in light of emerging issues will also be summarized.

This CLE is approved for credit through June 17, 2024.
