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 desperateneed of care for their loved ones will sign away rights unknowingly. It is understandable that thenursing home would want to avoid liability for their negligence, but is unfair that families mightlater suffer from the mistakes of the nursing home and not be rewarded fair damages. Somefamilies might not have any other options for care and this nursing home would be takingadvantage of these vulnerable situations. Many people sign without bothering to read the smallprints because they are given a giant stack of papers and told where to sign. I think these areimportant aspects to a document that should be highlighted so families are aware of theconsequences 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 bindingprint in this specific living agreement can hurt families in the event of an accident.
