In an action for medical malpractice and alleged violations of Public Health Law §2801-d, the plaintiff moved to compel the production of the metadata and audit trail relating to the resident care chart maintained by CG&P’s client, a prominent Long Island subacute and long-term care facility. CG&P sought a protective order preventing the disclosure of the information.
In an action for negligence and violations of the New York Public Health Law, it was alleged that CG&P’s client, an adult home, violated the New York Public Health Law with respect to a resident who fell and sustained a hip fracture which required surgical repair. CG&P moved for summary judgment with respect to the Public Health Law cause of action on the grounds that the statute is only applicable to claims against residential healthcare facilities, commonly known as nursing homes.
In an action for negligence and medical malpractice, it was alleged that CG&P’s client, an assisted living facility, and the co-defendant physician were negligent in caring for a resident who sustained multiple falls. CG&P moved for summary judgment on the grounds that the admission agreement between the facility and the resident limited the facility’s responsibilities.
