Includes a Live Event on 04/28/2021 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
This seminar will focus on the current laws in Maryland concerning medical and recreational marijuana use and what the future holds in light of a democratic state legislature. We will explore the ramifications of legal developments concerning marijuana with respect to long term care. In particular, we will look at how this issue has been treated in other states and the impact that it has had on long term care providers. Attendees will learn about anticipated future developments concerning marijuana use among residents and the impact this will have on nursing home resident rights and regulatory enforcement. We will conclude by discussing effective policies and procedures facilities can implement in addressing cannabis use among residents.

Kyle René is an Associate in Hancock Daniel’s Richmond office, where he advises clients in corporate transactions and regulatory compliance matters. He has aided healthcare organizations in drafting and executing managed care agreements, and has also overseen the implementation of compliance programs to meet the conditions of participation with Medicare. “In our industry, responsiveness is critical. I like to think of myself as a team member for my clients, and to be available to serve them when it matters most.”
Kyle began his legal career within the healthcare industry, serving as in-house counsel to skilled nursing facilities and related healthcare providers. Having worked alongside provider staff at all levels, from executives and owners to nursing aides, Kyle focuses on a practical approach to advising clients. “The regulatory and financial challenges that providers face on a daily basis demand an ‘on-the-ground’ approach to problem solving. My aim is to provide solutions that are realistic and relieve the burdens on providers, rather than increase them.”
