  • The Pennsylvania Superior Court, in a recently issued opinion entitled Scampione v. Grane Healthcare Co., extended the theory of corporate liability to nursing homes. This theory has been utilized to establish direct hospital liability, and involves distinct elements that attempt to hold an institution directly liable as opposed to vicariously liable for the acts of agents.
