Law360: The Top Coronavirus Questions Health Attys Are HearingMarch 17, 2020
O’Melveny Health Care Practice Chair David Deaton was quoted by Law360 in this article about the legal issues raised by the coronavirus pandemic and how he’s responding to unprecedented client inquiries. Deaton and clients have been brainstorming how to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed by the pandemic, Law360 reported. “We are assisting clients in evaluating numerous out-of-the-box solutions, including reopening mothballed hospitals and clinics and converting large non-health-care facilities — like hotels, stadiums, schools and other public and private facilities within our local communities — into temporary surge treatment centers,” Deaton said.
