CANHR Litigation

Since 1985, CANHR has successfully litigated a number of lawsuits against the Department of Health Services (now two departments: the Department of Public Health and the Department of Health Care Services). These lawsuits have involved resident rights issues such as the right to informed consent prior to the administration of psychotropic drugs, the failure of the Department to respond to complaints on a timely basis and access to ownership information on California nursing homes. CANHR, on behalf of its members, has also been an organizational plaintiff in six lawsuits filed against the Department of Health Services (now Department of Health Care Services) and the Recovery Unit since 1993 to ensure fair and equitable Medi-Cal recovery regulations.
