Nursing home liability bill is shunted off to study committee

Tennessee

Nashville, TN - A bill that would rein in lawsuits against nursing homes was sent to a legislative study committee on Tuesday, ending for this session an acrimonious battle over it.

The House Civil Practice Subcommittee voted to create a joint study committee that will review the bill, known as the Nursing Home Patient Protection Act of 2008, and propose a compromise.
