Guardianships

A patient's or resident's incapacity must not prevent your facility from recovering money owed for services rendered or expose you to liability when health care decisions are required. GDGC will petition to appoint a guardian who will marshal the patient's assets to ensure payment to the facility or make crucial health care decisions.

Through the guardianship process, we will secure financial channels to guarantee outstanding debts of the patient/resident by restraining bank accounts, attaching and foreclosing real property and requiring asset spend downs to secure Medicaid eligibility.

We can further protect you from dangerous and unnecessary exposure by effectively and properly handling emergency petitions and life support hearings, and help you achieve timely discharges and transfers.
