  1. Understand the purpose and benefits of arbitration agreements
  2. Review state and federal laws regarding arbitration agreements
  3. Describe the requirements for arbitration agreements in nursing homes and the potential deficiencies for noncompliance
  4. Identify how your facility can improve its arbitration agreement and/or process for residents signing your facility’s arbitration agreement
