Tammy Banasek will be one of the featured speakers at DRI’s 2021 Senior Living and Long-Term Care Litigation Seminar. She and Mary Foote, an R.N. with Woundcare on Wheels, will discuss how to clinically differentiate between a COVID skin injury and a facility-acquired pressure injury. They will highlight the key elements of documentation, risk analysis, and modifications necessary for a successful litigation defense of these newly evolving skin failure issues. Registration and CLE information about the conference, which is being held in Las Vegas on September 23-24, is available here.

Banasek, a partner in the firm’s Chicago office, focuses her practice on the defense of complex medical, dental, and nursing home issues, as well as professional liability matters. She is a Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent-Rated Attorney and has been awarded a Trial Lawyer Excellence Award by Jury Verdict Reporter. She regularly speaks and publishes in the areas of professional and general liability.

HeplerBroom is pleased to announce that its physical offices have reopened. While the health and safety of our clients, employees, and families, remain our top priority, HeplerBroom attorneys and staff are returning to our offices on full-time or modified schedules. Our offices are open to visitors and clients with scheduled appointments, with appropriate screening of visitors and social-distancing protocols. HeplerBroom will continue to follow CDC recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing.

We are very proud of the dedicated efforts of our attorneys and staff to provide great service and work product to our clients during the pandemic. This would not have been possible without the incredible support provided by the HeplerBroom IT Department and other essential personnel who supported our personnel and clients from the office locations while the rest of our teams worked remotely.

If you have questions about visiting our offices, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you in person again in the near future.
