remain in effect even after the termination of the agreement. I think this clause is an unfair request by the nursing home. Families who are in desperate need of care for their loved ones will sign away rights unknowingly. It is understandable that the nursing home would want to avoid liability for their negligence, but is unfair that families might later suffer from the mistakes of the nursing home and not be rewarded fair damages. Some families might not have any other options for care and this nursing home would be taking advantage of these vulnerable situations. Many people sign without bothering to read the small prints because they are given a giant stack of papers and told where to sign. I think these are important aspects to a document that should be highlighted so families are aware of the consequences before making a commitment, especially because the agreement is so binding. While arbitration clauses are responsible for places such as a nursing home, I think the binding print in this specific living agreement can hurt families in the event of an accident.
