New Podcast Episode on the U.S. Supreme Court Case on Nursing Home Residents' Rights

July 27, 2023

Few lawsuits make it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. However, one brought by the family of Gorgi Talevski did just that -- and they won! The Talevski case decision is important in that it addresses the rights of nursing home residents, their ability to sue a state run (publicly owned) nursing home, and addresses the importance of the Nursing Home Reform Act in establishing the standard of care.

Join our discussion with Suzana Talevski, attorney and daughter of Mr. Talevski; Maame Gyamfi, Senior Attorney at AARP Foundation Litigation; and Toby Edelman, Senior Policy Attorney with the Center for Medicare Advocacy.

Ms. Gyamfi authored an amicus curiae, or friend of the court, brief on behalf of AARP and several other groups, including Consumer Voice. Ms. Edelman authored an amicus brief addressing the background and history of the Nursing Home Reform Act.

In this episode, we discuss the lawsuit, the Supreme Court decision, and what this means for residents. To access the U.S. Supreme Court decision and briefs filed in this case, visit the U.S. Supreme Court website, Docket No. 21-806.
