Under Virginia law, you can revoke an arbitration agreement signed with a medical provider, while receiving care, up until, 60 days after care ended. Specifically this applies to nursing homes – so as a matter of course, when leaving a nursing home, we would recommend you send a letter to the Administrator of the Nursing Home, in writing, revoking the arbitration agreement. At least this protects your right to access the court should anything happen…. or, learn later, something did happen.
