What does it say about the patient protection laws in Texas when a Kentucky corporation that owns 21 skilled nursing facilities in that state is willing to transfer ownership to a Texas corporation just so they don't have to worry about being sued for negligence?
The company, Extendicare, says that "tort reform" laws in Kentucky aren't strong enough, at least compared with the laws in Texas, which come close to giving nursing home operators almost complete immunity from medical negligence lawsuits.
So Extendicare is going to lease all 21 of its nursing homes in Kentucky to a Texas corporation. The homes will, obviously, stay in Kentucky. How sad that Texas has such a reputation for valuing the rights of businesses over the rights of the elderly and disabled who reside in nursing homes.
