Last year MedTruth covered the controversial enactment of state laws and regulations protecting nursing homes from COVID-19 related lawsuits. Roughly half of all states filed some form of nursing home protection law, or a more general business protection law that covers nursing homes in 2020, Law.com reports.
Now, at the beginning of the pandemic’s second year, MedTruth is providing updated information about these protections.
In the first two weeks of 2021, Alaska, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Montana, Nebraska, and Wisconsin all introduced bills designed to extend or renew previous COVID-19 lawsuit protections put in place last year, as reported by Law360.
