In 90 minutes, we can be there to help you through it.

What is ALERT?

Attorney Legal Emergency Response Team (ALERT) was developed by Myers Carden & Sax LLC to better help our nursing home clients. Once registered, you have access to an on-site attorney any time, day or night, for the critical 90 minutes after an occurrence. The service is available for a single fee per incident. For any question or to register for ALERT, please do not hesitate to call us at (312) 345-7250.


With extensive experience defending long term care facilities, we know that the best way to protect our clients is to have an attorney on-scene immediately following an occurrence at your facility. That way, we can help navigate sensitive, complex situations. We call it ALERT — Attorney Legal Emergency Response Team.

ALERT puts an attorney at your nursing home within 90 minutes of a situation, day or night, seven days a week. And, the information is protected through attorney/client privilege.

We help by:

  • Conducting initial interviews of all involved staff
  • Providing legal counsel, if desire, for staff interviews
  • Ensuring all event summaries are accurate while fresh in the witnesses' minds
  • Identifying, isolating and photographing any involved equipment for future identification
  • Ensuring that all appropriate actions have been taken
  • Identifying any follow-up action
  • Providing advice by phone if preferred
  • Assessing whether your staff needs more training to minimize future situations
  • Providing a privileged summary of events within 48 hours after we leave the facility
