Liability Under California Health & Safety Code 1430(b)

June 1, 2017

Desktop webinar explores how to limit exposure

Nationally recognized healthcare litigators Bill Johnson and Randall Romero from WSHB will lead a Southern California Association for Healthcare Risk Management (SCAHRM) webinar exploring how to limit exposure under Health & Safety Code 1430(b) on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at 10 am. Learning objectives include: Introduction to Liability Exposure, Plaintiff’s Use of 1430(b) as a Damages Multiplier, Runaway Attorney’s Fees Awards, and Reducing Exposure to Claims and Damages.

“1430(b) provides legal relief to residents of skilled nursing facilities for violation of Title 22’s “Patient Bill of Rights,” leading to fines, costs, and, most significantly, attorney’s fees,” said Johnson, a partner at WSHB. “It is important to understand how this vague, seemingly inconsequential statute has been utilized by plaintiffs’ attorneys to obtain hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages against facilities, in order to limit exposure to these suits, both before the suits are filed and after.

Johnson manages an active state and federal litigation practice defending elder care, employment, and medical malpractice, healthcare and pharmaceutical products liability cases. Romero, a senior associate at WSHB, has worked in healthcare litigation since 1999. His practice centers on the defense of healthcare providers, including skilled nursing facilities, residential care facilities, hospitals, drug and alcohol rehabilitation providers, physicians and nurses, with focus in the areas of elder abuse, negligence, medical malpractice, personal injury and wrongful death.
