This Article argues that pre-dispute compulsory arbitration provisions in nursing home contracts should not be enforced and encourages the elimination of such clauses in long-term care contracts. This Article will lay out the historical background and development of arbitration and then will address the use of arbitration clauses in nursing home admission contracts. Finally, this Article will explore recent developments of arbitration law in long-term care contracts, both federally and in the state of Missouri, with particular attention given to the Supreme Court of Missouri's decision in Lawrence v. Beverly Manor.
