Court Of Appeals
A certified nursing assistant who was allegedly repeatedly assaulted by a resident with dementia can sue her former employer over an allegedly hostile work environment, a court of appeals ruled last week.
A U.S. Court of Appeals has upheld the National Labor Relations Board determination that a nursing home operator should have negotiated with an existing union when it took over a facility, and was discriminatory when it refused to hire five union local officers.
A federal appeals court has ruled that the jury in an improper medication suit against a nursing home was given proper instructions by a federal trial court. The decision put more responsibility on the accused facility, which could not supply medication reports from a 2007 incident.
