This article examines how different for-profit nursing home facilities with varying levels of lawsuit risk responded to the litigious environment existing in Florida during 1999. Specifically, this article considers the question: How do nursing home staffs differ in their views of litigation risks and their reactions to those perceived risks? To answer this question, this study examined selected Florida facilities from a large, multinational, for-profit long-term-care chain.
